Facing death and dying is huge and something no one should have to face alone. At the same time, it can be really difficult to talk about it, with many finding it hard to know how to support someone.
To help you find a way to start the conversation we have put together a page of resources to help support this. These will help you talk about death, dying, grief and bereavement in a healthy and age-appropriate way.
While a hospice is not just a place to die, we do care for people with life-limiting illnesses. Our nurses and health care assistants provide care in our In-patient Ward and the home, covering six Surrey Boroughs. Our clinical teams offer holistic care to help control symptom management and pain relief.
We also offer support to carers and family members, supporting children and young adults through our counselling services.
Writing a message of remembrance on our Memory page is a lovely way to commemorate a loved one’s life, and offers a place to revisit. We also have our in-person Light up a Life remembrance service each December which offers our community a place to join in together to reflect and celebrate the life of your loved one.
With this, we are pleased to share that the Hospice will be hosting the Death Café. The discussion group offers a safe place to come and have a refreshment and talk with others about death. Death Café aims ‘To increase awareness of death to help people make the most of their (finite) lives.’
