Talking about death and dying is difficult for most people but it may bring relief to share your feelings, concerns and fears. It may help to reduce anxiety and support relationships in your family.
The counselling offered to me and my son has been wonderful and of huge benefit to us. We attend the parent and children group… my son speaks to other children going through similar experiences, he feels normal and not someone who is treated differently because his mum has died.
What we offer
Princess Alice Hospice offers patients, family and carers time to talk at any stage of illness through support groups and one-to-one sessions with trained staff or bereavement volunteers.
We can also help you access a suitable counselling programme provided by a qualified counsellor, if you feel this is right for you.
We can also offer spiritual and religious support through our spiritual care team. They will visit you at home or at the Hospice. Your own clergy or religious leaders are welcome at the Hospice at any time.
And when your loved one dies we will offer bereavement support for family and friends including young children and teenagers.
