Bereavement Service

When we lose someone whether it be through a long or short illness, or a sudden unexpected accident we are left with a void in our life that does not lend itself to the old maxim of “put it behind you and move on”. The feelings need acknowledgment and safe expression, as does our change in identity (I am now a “widow” and do not want to be).  Island offers a comprehensive bereavement service through its team of social workers and trained volunteer caregivers that provide or conduct. All of us grieve in our own way, in our own time. Island Hospice can help guide you through the complicated and sometimes overwhelming grieving process. You do not have to grieve alone.
Our trained professionals have dealt with a wide range of bereavement situations and are ready to help you with your unique circumstances. We offer:


- Individual counselling sessions
- Group therapy
- Children’s bereavement programmes & support groups
- Creative expression workshops for children
- Widows support groups
- Bereaved parents groups
- Other support group as identified by need
