Help when families need it

St. Joseph’s Hospice provides a Family Support and Bereavement Counselling Service at the hospice for patients and their families.

The hospice’s family support and bereavement counselling service helps patients and their family members to talk about their feelings, fears and practical matters with someone outside of their family. It’s important for families both before and after the death of their loved one and is available to families for as long as they need it.

Barbara Deus, Family Support Worker at St. Joseph’s Hospice, said: “We conducted an evaluation of the service in April 2017 and the feedback was very positive. One hundred per cent of the families who responded said they found the support was helpful; the service was worthwhile; and they would recommend it to others.

“The majority of families questioned said the hospice’s family support and bereavement service helped them to talk openly with someone outside of the family.
