Support Hope Bereavement Care
Why support Hope?
A sudden and unexpected death is devastating and shocking. It can lead to feelings of disbelief, guilt, loneliness, fear, anxiety and helplessness, as well as physical symptoms including nausea, sleeplessness and exhaustion. These experiences can increase the risk of relationship breakdowns, financial strain and ongoing mental health concerns.
There are times that those who are bereaved need more support than that of family and friends. Those bereaved by suicide sometimes find it hard to reach out for help, and when families lose a baby during pregnancy or at birth, it can be hard for those who love and support them to know how to assist.
