Planning for tomorrow – after bereavement

Together after caring

Losing a loved one is a painful and upsetting time for you and your family. We are here to support you as you come to terms with the changes this brings and look at continuing your life after your caring role.

  • Whether or not you had support from Caring Together in your caring role – we can now support you during your bereavement.
  • Changes to your life and routine may be difficult to manage. Bereavement can be a lonely and isolating time, it also affects people around you. It is important that you receive help and support.
  • We can help in many ways – by you continuing to be a part of our hubs, with invitations to social events, continued one-to-one support, a pen pal scheme, our Listening ear service and with signposting to other support and opportunities.
  • You may want to consider volunteering, now or in the future, – your knowledge and experiences from your caring role are valuable, and hugely important.
    • You may wish to use these, or other skills you have to help others. Volunteering could be helping at hubs, joining the Listening ear service, helping with fundraising or you being involved in other ways.
    • Volunteering is a good way to reduce isolation and to either continue your connections with your community, or to build new ones.
