St Elizabeth Hospice Emotional wellbeing and bereavement phoneline and 565 service: 01473 707999, 9am – 4pm, 7 days a week
The enquiry line is available for anyone who is impacted by the current crisis or grief, regardless of whether they have accessed the hospice before. The team can provide 1:1 counselling, family and group support. They specialise in working with clients that are impacted by a life limiting illness and those affected by a bereavement.
Bereavement support and information resources are also on their website, including a third party service called GriefChat where individuals can speak directly with a specially trained bereavement counsellor through instant online chat.
This is a challenging time for children and young people so the hospice has launched a new 565 Service providing emotional support to 5-18 year olds. Information, top tips and activities to help parents and schools support children through their loss during the pandemic is also available.
Our aim is to provide high quality, tailor-made services to clients, living in their own homes in the community.
We do this by matching our clients’ needs, wishes and choices, with carers who are qualified and skilled to help and support them.
We place our clients at the heart of our practice, by making sure we listen to what they tell us they want and need.
We will encourage our clients to remain as independent as they can.
We can support clients who, for various reasons, are unable to manage some aspects of their daily lives without help.
