Help & Support - Life Must Go On
Most people find the strength to cope with their bereavement in the period immediately following the death of a loved one. It’s after the funeral, when life is supposed to return to normal, that many experience the natural effects of grief.
This may show itself as loneliness, a deep and lasting depression or difficulty in coping with ordinary, everyday affairs.
For some, too, there is the added burden of financial hardship.
Fortunately, there are organisations ready and willing to offer practical help, sympathetic counselling and companionship.
In addition to the local Department of Social Services and Citizen's Advice Bureau - both of whom will help in practical ways - there are often local branches of national organisations, ready to respond to a call, and offering friendly groups of people who understand and provide support.
Information and contact details from organisations such as Cruse, the National Association of Widows and others, is kept on our files. Our team will be most willing to talk to you about them and the help they can offer, and if you wish, put you in touch. It’s not a weakness to seek such support and can ease the grieving process considerably.
