Bereavement Support

Bereavement can be a difficult and lonely journey

Talking and sharing feelings with someone who is experienced in listening, or with other bereaved people who have similar experiences can be helpful. Willen Hospice can offer bereavement support at a time and in a way that feels right for you.

Patient & Family Service volunteers are not trained counsellors but are highly trained in listening and support skills.

Volunteers are unable to give out their personal contact details, if you need to change an appointment, please ring the Hospice telephone number 01908 663636 and ask for a message to be passed to the volunteer who will then ring you to re arrange.

All information given to a volunteer is subject the normal confidentiality guidelines. However, should any information be given to a volunteer that raises a cause for concern around the vulnerability or safety of yourself or someone else, then they have a duty to pass on their concerns to the Patient & Family Services Team or relevant team at Milton Keynes Council. All volunteers are DBS checked.

Young People’s Support Service: An adult must be available within the home at all times during support sessions.
