Letting you know that we are here to help.
We hope all readers are well and coping with this difficult pandemic situation. Just a few weeks ago we couldn’t have imagined that we were about to face such a huge challenge, one which requires us to draw on all our resources. This is especially difficult when we are already experiencing the loss of a loved one.
Here at Suffolk Bereavement Support we feel a little powerless in not being able to run our groups and bring together the bereaved to try to understand the range of emotions experienced and to learn and gain support from each other. Although we have explored electronic possibilities, we don’t feel that these would be appropriate for the sort of groups that we offer.
However, we want to let you know that we continue to be at the end of the telephone or email should anyone who has lost a loved one and finding adjusting difficult wish to get in touch. We are here to offer telephone and email support and look forward to the time when we can resume meeting in groups. Our website is also a source of lots of useful information for anyone who has lost a loved one. Amongst other things, it explains the importance of expressing feelings appropriately so that they are not suppressed in such a way that they lead to more deep seated physical and emotional difficulties. We are happy to hear from anyone who wants to know more about our support.
If this blog is meaningful for you in connection with a bereavement, be it recent or further back in time, then why not find out more Suffolk Bereavement Support? When back to normal our afternoon group is held in central Hadleigh on the second and fourth Thursday of each month from 1.30-3pm and our Capel St Mary group meets in the early evening on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month from 6.30-8pm.
We would love to hear from you. Please ring Margaret or Patrick on 07469 201337 or 01473 824066 or email: [email protected].
