Facing Loss and Bereavement

We can help you with difficult conversations about dying and death

These resources are designed to help you to start some of those difficult conversations with family, friends and children. Learn how to feel confident to talk about death; to ask questions of each other; to listen and to be sure of what your loved ones would like to happen, when death comes.

Visit our bereavement and emotional support page for help with your own grief, and to find out some of the more practical aspects of dealing with the death of a loved one. It covers some of the different situations and emotions you may be faced with.  You can also visit the Cruse Bereavement Care website for additional support.
