Help for you following a bereavement

Please accept our deepest sympathy for your loss at this sad time. The death of someone you love can be a devastating experience and even if you knew they were dying, you may still feel a sense of shock when they die.

You may experience sadness, anxiety, anger and guilt, as well as blaming others. Common physical responses can be of overwhelming tiredness and difficulty in sleeping, generalised aches and pains with possible changes in appetite, a feeling of sickness and a vulnerability to infections.

If these symptoms continue and start impacting on your daily routines you may need to seek medical support/advice.

When someone dies there are many decisions and arrangements to be made. This booklet (please find link below) aims to provide some useful help and advice during the early days of your bereavement.
