Christmas may not feel like it can be the same after someone close to you has passed away, and you may not even feel like celebrating it. Child Bereavement UK has some useful guidance on how to manage over the festive period.
At Willen Hospice, our individual, specialist care makes a real impact on the lives of patients. We spoke to Bessie, who regularly attends our Wellbeing Centre, and she related her story about the positive difference the hospice has made in her life.
Carers Week returns 12th-18th June to raise awareness of caring, challenges carers face and to recognise the contribution they make to those they care for and around them.
Fi Jones, Willen Hospice’s Bereavement Co-ordinator, shares her Blue Week poem.
We can't protect children from death. They encounter it all the time – whether it’s a mouse brought in by the cat or a grandparent dying.
The Willen Hospice Singers will make a wonderful choir for your special event.
Christmas is seen as a time for children and full of fun and joy, although grieving and bereaved children and adults may struggle with their feelings and emotions at this difficult time.
We often become aware of parents who will be experiencing the despair of being diagnosed with a life limiting condition who may also be raising their child/ren alone.
This week is national Carers Week - "Building Carer Friendly Communities."
A memory box is a great way for children to hold on to the memories of someone special in their life who has died.
Many going through bereavement can often find it difficult to express their feelings.
Thank you for your support
