Talking about your feelings with someone who isn’t emotionally involved in your own loss can help.
At Age UK Gateshead’s our trained bereavement support volunteers can help support you through the difficult times.
Our service can provide one to one support, telephone support and a social support group, which will be tailored to meet your own individual bereavement needs following an initial call or visit from our Bereavement Support Supervisor.
In addition to the strong emotions that you can experience after a bereavement, you may also have worries about practical issues, such as how to manage on a smaller income and handle household tasks. It’s important to seek advice if you are struggling to manage, so you can get the help you need.
For more information take a look at our leaflet or get in touch with our Bereavement Support Supervisor, Audrey Wood.
