The Macmillan Bereavement Service was set up in 2005 with financial aid from Macmillan Cancer Support over 3 years. The service offers long and short term bereavement support to relatives and carers of patients using specialist palliative care services. People may contact us to seek support at any time after a loss.
For the majority of people bereavement is a complex, often painful, but normal process. Some people are particularly vulnerable and in order to offer additional support for them we have our Macmillan Bereavement Service. We have Volunteer Counsellors who provide 1-1 counselling.
Patients and relatives using Ealing Hospital (EHT) and those who have been under the hospice care at home in the local community also have access to the service.
People are welcome to come and talk informally, or to contact us for information:
- Bereavement Support: A supporter to talk to
- Individual Counselling: Counselling can be helpful when difficulties arise
We also hold a service of remembrance, 'Light up a Life', each year in November.
For further information please contact: the Macmillan Bereavement Service Manager
We offer 1-1 counselling support in our dedicated counselling rooms within Meadow House Hospice. We also aim to run group support for those who have completed 1-1 counselling.
All our Volunteer Counsellors are undergoing counselling professional training or are already qualified counsellors. They all receive regular supervision.
Professionals such as GPs, CNSs and other healthcare professionals can contact us on 020 8967 5179 or contact Priscah Kago-Guede, Bereavement Manager, on 020 8242 5921.
From 25th April we will be running a Bereavement Group for 8 weeks - 10.30 am - 12.30 pm. Please call to book on either of the above numbers.
