Bereavement Support

The Death of someone close to us can be one of the most difficult and painful experiences we have to deal with. It can lead to many different emotions such as despair, anger, guilt, depression and loneliness.

While LARCC was founded to help people live with their cancer, we have found a need to support our clients, families and friends as they grieve for the loss of their loved one.

Our Mission in Bereavement Support is

  • To provide support to our clients as they grieve
  • To provide a confidential reassuring service as our client moves through the different stages of their grief and loss
  • To provide an empathetic listening service

Objectives

To support our clients –

  • Physically – Discussing issues such as sleep patterns, loss of appetite, fatigue etc.
  • Mentally / Emotionally – to listen as individuals share their feelings such as hurt, anger, guilt, fear, hope, peace and many more.

The Team

LARCC’s range of bereavement services are delivered by a team of experienced and highly qualified counsellors / psychotherapists, nurses and complimentary therapists.

LARCC offers support to those who are bereaved through –

  • One-to-One / Individual Counselling
    One to one discussion with a qualified counsellor.
  • 10-Week Bereavement Support Programme
    To provide an opportunity for a group of people to share their loss and grief and obtain peer support from members of the group. Knowing you are not on your own as you grieve is very helpful.

    LARCC provides a comfortable setting for our clients who would like to meet socially over a cup of tea and enjoy social events, be it a walking day out, a guest speaker evening or a Tai Chi group.
    Support groups are facilitated by one of our nurses / counsellors who will give the encouragement to the group to look at their own needs and hopes to enjoy participating in social activities again.
