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.

Therapeutic Bereavement Support

Our psychotherapists and counsellors may also support you through your bereavement.

  • Individual therapy
  • Couples therapy
  • Family therapy

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.
