At Compton Care, you never have to go the distance alone, our bereavement care partners are here to support you along the way.
Support that's tailored to you
Grief is a personal experience, but it's not one that you have to go through alone.
From the type of support offered to the frequency of your visits, our bereavement care is tailored to your needs.
You can have one to one sessions with a specially trained bereavement visitor here at The Cedars, or join a group session with others who may have similar experiences to you.
We’re here for you for as long as you need us. Some people feel that one session is enough, whilst others will have regular sessions for as long as they are deemed to be helpful.
Most people choose to take some time for themselves before accessing support, but if you need help sooner – we encourage you to get in touch, we will always aim to accommodate your needs.
Who can access bereavement care?
Many people think of accessing bereavement care as a last resort for desperate circumstances, but it doesn't need to be. You might find it helpful to talk to a trained listener outside, of your immediate circle, alongside receiving support from your friends and family members.
Compton bereavement care is there for anyone who's loved one has received support from us. If you’ve had a friend or family member cared for by us on our inpatient unit, by our teams out in the community, or within our day therapy centre, you can access our bereavement care.
We support adults and also have a dedicated children’s bereavement service that specialises in supporting young people aged between 5 and 17 years of age.
If you think you'd benefit from accessing our bereavement care, or to find out more information you can contact a member of the team using our contact form, or call us on 0300 323 0250.
