Bereavement Support Services

As well as providing nursing and medical care, we offer practical advice, emotional support and a comprehensive wellbeing programme. Our Spiritual Care Lead is on hand for those who want spiritual care, and our support extends to families and carers too. 

Loss is something that everyone experiences at some time in their life and everyone reacts in a different way. Grief is a response to loss. Coping with the loss of someone you love is one of life’s biggest challenges. Often, the pain of loss can feel overwhelming.

You may experience all kinds of difficult and unexpected emotions, from shock or anger to disbelief, guilt, and profound sadness. The pain of grief can also disrupt your physical health, making it difficult to sleep, eat, or even think straight. These are normal reactions to significant loss. But while there is no right or wrong way to grieve, there are healthy ways to cope with the pain that, in time, can ease your sadness and help you come to terms with your loss, find new meaning, and move on with your life.

It can be hard to accept the loss. It is not unusual to feel as though you have ‘seen’ or ‘heard’ the person who has died. Many bereaved people feel stressed and physically run down, finding it difficult to eat or sleep. Grief is a time consuming and exhausting experience.

North East Lincolnshire Bereavement Support Service

Three of the region's leading provider, St Andrew's Hospice, Care Plus Group and CRUSE Bereavement Care, have formed a partnership to enable better provision of bereavement support throughout North East Lincolnshire. 

The North East Lincolnshire Bereavement Support Service offers free, confidential support for adults and children. The referral and assessment process ensures each individual or family is offered the right service, whether that be within the hospice, their home, school or through another organisation.

The death of someone we care for affects us in different ways. Everyone experiences grief differently and there is no normal or right way to grieve. Grief is a natural process, and most people work through their grief utilising their own coping mechanisms. But we recognise that some people need additional specialist support. 

If you are struggling to cope after the death of someone close to you, call: 01472 250623 and our team will get in touch to assess your needs and arrange the most appropriate support.
