The team will usually have got to know those close to the patient in the weeks or months before the death. One of us will contact you and offer to visit in the days after the death, when you may need support and information quickly.
We realise that the weeks and months after the loss of someone close can be very sad, confusing and difficult. Many people tell us that they just don’t know what to do, and where to start. You may feel overwhelmed by your thoughts and feelings, as well as the practical and financial implications of your loss. The bereavement support team will offer to support you during this time, if you require.
