Counselling & Bereavement Support

The Hospice provides a bereavement counselling service, to enable families and carers, both adults and children, face the inevitable and help them through the grieving process.

Our Bereavement Support Service:

Provides an opportunity to talk confidentially on a one-to-one basis with the Hospice Social Worker either in your own home or in the Hospice Unit. This will enable you to explore and work through emotions and problems that you may find difficult following your bereavement.

The Southern Area Hospcie provide two Bereavement Support Groups, one for adults and one specifically designed for children and teenagers.

The adult group meet twice annually, in Newry and Dungannon. The group is held in Spring and Autumn and runs over a six week period. Bereaved relatives will receive an invitation to these meetings approximately 4 weeks before the meetings.

Support is available for children and teenagers in the form of one-to-one counselling, and bereavement groups.

Application forms are available on request from Hospice Social Worker.
