Bereavement

Our Bereavement Service supports family, friends and important others of patients who have died and who were known to us at Wakefield Hospice

We aim to contact families three to four weeks after the bereavement by telephone, to explore what, if any support might be helpful at this time. We recognise grief is very unique and not the same for everyone.

If you would like to discuss this further, please call on 01924 331400 and ask to speak to the Bereavement team.

Support for bereaved families affected by Covid-19

Our experienced bereavement team are currently extending our support to anyone who has been bereaved or affected by Coronavirus.
 
This represents a significant extension to our service which has been generously funded through charitable giving.

This service will also be available to access by our local Care Home residents, their family members and the staff who support and care for them.
 
We have an experienced, well-established and diverse team, and we are here to support our local community.
 
Please contact us on 01924 331400 and a member of our team will be able to provide support over the telephone.
 

Please find below links to articles relating to bereavement which we hope you will find useful. If you need to contact us please do so via our contact page or by calling us on 01924 331400.
