"it can be beneficial to meet with others who are grieving"

Bereavement Support Groups

For some people it can be beneficial to meet with others who are grieving and share thoughts, feelings and ways that may help us to cope with our grief.

A small support group, facilitated by someone who is familiar with grief and group dynamics may be useful. Often, these groups meet monthly for a few months. Some may be “drop-in” groups.

The Florence Nightingale Hospice Bereavement Support Team runs facilitated support groups from time to time. For details of support groups, please contact Florence Nightingale Hospice Bereavement Listening and Support by phone (01296 332600) or email FNH.Bereavement@buckshealthcare.nhs.uk

Other groups are run by:

Cruse Bereavement Care – support@crusebucks.org.uk

Survivors of bereavement by suicide –sobs.aylesbury@gmail.com

Child Bereavement UK – enquiries@childbereavement.org.uk

Time to Remember

Our ‘Time to Remember’ service is held at Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity, Walton Lodge, Aylesbury, and is an opportunity for families and friends to come together and remember a loved one.

The format is a short service (25 minutes approx) of readings from various sources, intertwined with hymns, and with a central act of remembrance in which the names of those who have died are read out and a memorial candle is lit. Everyone is encouraged to attend the service, whether they want to join in or to pay respect to those who have died. There is an opportunity to view the remembrance book and talk with other relatives or members of the Bereavement Support Team over tea/coffee at the end of the service.

To find out more about Time to Remember services, please contact David Nash or Dorothy Howlett on 01296 332600 or email: FNH.Bereavement@buckshealthcare.nhs.uk
