‘Coping with Grief – the first Christmas and beyond’ aims to offer reassurance and ideas to consider to help those dealing with loss navigate their way through the festive season and beyond.
“It’s now that time of year when TV adverts portray a sparkling, family-orientated, food-obsessed holiday. For many of those who recognise Christmas or other significant celebrations in December, it can be the ‘most wonderful time of the year’. For those who have been bereaved, particularly since the previous Christmas, it can be a truly challenging time.
“We want to reassure people that grief is a normal response to significant loss. It’s important to understand that everyone will deal with grief and these calendar markers differently.
He added: “The grief experienced at this time of year, if recognised and supported, can be a helpful part of the grieving process. While this is just a brief guide intended to offer reassurance and some ideas, Hospice in the Weald provides a wealth of free resources and support for those coping with bereavement. We want to do all we can to open up conversations about death and normalise grief.”
