With the current crisis meaning that sadly, more people are dying – and often more quickly – St Luke’s are extending the reach of their bereavement support service to anyone who has lost a loved one to COVID-19 or is anticipating this heartbreak. People can self refer and do not have to linked to St Luke’s care services.
We also know that COVID-19 has made loss even more complex for so many people. They might not have been able to visit their loved one in a care home or hospital, or perhaps they’ve had to make extraordinarily tough decisions on who could attend the funeral.
If they need help, just ask them to pick up the phone and call our team on 01752 964200. Whatever they are feeling, we will listen and support them.
We’re also here for health and social care teams, recognising the toll the pandemic is taking on those working in hospitals and care homes. We’ll give you the space and support you need to reflect, de-brief, release some emotion and signpost you to the most appropriate support.
