Our staff are trained in bereavement counselling and will help the bereaved to cope with their loss and grief.
Grief has no set pattern. It comes in waves and sometimes can take quite a while to get over.
There have been many observations made over the years.
“Perhaps this is what the stories meant when they called somebody heartsick. Your heart and your stomach and your whole insides felt empty and hollow and aching.”
― Gabriel García Márquez
“Everyone grieves in different ways. For some, it could take longer or shorter. I do know it never disappears. An ember still smoulders inside me. Most days, I don’t notice it, but, out of the blue, it’ll flare to life.”
― Maria V. Snyder, Storm Glass
