We offer support and therapy to our patients’ families and carers.
It is important that you take care of your own health, even if you are busy looking after someone else's health. Being healthy is not only important for you, but it helps the person you care for too.
Families and Carers
Emotional & Practical Support
At South Bucks Hospice we extend all supportive therapies available to our patients to their families and carers as well. See our ‘Patients’ pages for more information.
Bereavement Support Group
Grieving is an ongoing journey of slowly beginning to adapt to life being different, without the person who has died. This can be one of the most profound changes in a person’s life. It takes a great deal of energy to cope and most people find it exhausting and challenging.
Our Bereavement Support Group runs for six weeks at a time, several times a year.
Bereavement Listening Support
Our Bereavement Telephone Listening Support Service was launched in January 2022.
Our bereavement listeners will phone every week for up to three months to help support anyone who has lost a loved one to a prolonged, advanced life-limiting illness, with a GP in the South Bucks area.
Our Wellbeing Counselling Service is an integral part of Individual and Family Support at South Bucks Hospice. Being listened to and truly heard at a time when a loved one has been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, is a crucial part of processing what you have been experiencing. Counselling can help you make sense of what has happened, reflect on what is important to you and support you in finding and navigating a meaningful way forward.
- Individual therapy
- Couples therapy
Wellbeing counselling is open to anyone, over eighteen, with a prolonged advanced life-limiting illness or their main carer.

Practical Support for Carers
When caring for someone, many practical issues can be put to one side. We will always try to help you as far as possible, but if we are unable to we will help you get in touch with those who can.
