“Many thanks for your help and support since Barry passed.
I feel the grief road is a very difficult journey for all concerned. It is such a comfort to know there are people like you who are just a phone call away”.
A True Understanding
Losing a loved one, whether sudden or expected, is a traumatic experience and one that nobody can ever truly be prepared for.
There is no right or wrong way to grieve and every individual will experience it on their own terms in their own time. There are no stages to grief but it is common to experience:
- Lack of concentration – simple tasks can become difficult.
- Changes in sleeping and eating patterns.
- Sense of fear, nausea and extreme stress.
- Sad, distraught or a sense of relief, especially following a long illness
Our emotions can wash over us unexpectedly and it’s important that we can express our feelings when we feel them. Finding someone that you feel safe with to share your emotions is a key part of the process.
At Champ, we understand this which is why we provide a safe space to think, feel and grieve. You won’t be rushed into making any decisions until you’re ready: once you are, our caring team will be on-hand, guiding and supporting you through the choices that have to be made.
