Our care doesn't stop after your loved one passes away.
Bereavement can be the most traumatic and significant life event that a person has to face and is often a life-altering experience. Grief is a natural part of life but sometimes people may benefit from support to understand and cope with what can be a devastating time.
This support group is open to anyone whose loved one was cared for or supported by St. Rocco’s. We aim to provide a welcoming and safe space where you can come and chat to others sharing similar experiences, enjoy refreshments and benefit from the input from our complementary therapy team.
The café takes place on the last Friday of every month here at St. Rocco’s. It is a drop in style session and you are welcome to join us at any point between 1pm and 3pm for a drink.
Many people come through the experience of a major loss without the need for help from outside their circle of family or friends, but for others their feelings of loss are so overwhelming that it can be helpful to seek the support of a trained professional.
Counselling provides private, confidential space to gain emotional support and practical guidance at a challenging time. A counsellor is an impartial professional who will listen non-judgementally and help you adjust to life without your loved one.
We offer counselling support to family members, carers and close friends who are affected by the loss of their loved one if they were supported or cared for by St. Rocco’s.
Initially we offer six sessions lasting about fifty minutes each. Appointment times and goals for therapy will be discussed and greed t the first session. Along with the rest of the care that we provide, we don’t charge for this service.
Illness and a change in health can raise many of issues for you and those close to you. Spiritual care is about having someone to listen and help you to cope with whatever you may be going through. More
