We are sorry to hear that you’ve lost someone that was very close to you.

The passing of a loved one is never easy, and dealing with grief is even more challenging. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution, nor is there any way of predicting how a loss might affect you, whether it’s an unexpected loss or a more gradual goodbye.

You may find yourself acting in ways you’ve never acted before. You may feel completely numb, or experiencing every emotion there is to feel. You may want to be surrounded by family and friends, or remain alone and process your feelings. Please know, it’s ok to feel and act however you feel is best for you. It’s all part of the process and there are many helpful resources in this booklet to help you with both the personal and practical elements of someone passing away.

When your loved one passes away, any in-home services they may be receiving will stop. This is important to keep in mind, particularly if you are relying on these services for yourself. You may have a gardener visit you once a fortnight, or a cleaner coming to your home once a week.

We can assist you in ensuring you have the appropriate support to live life comfortably at home. Please fill out the form below and our friendly team will be in touch.
