As the covid-19 pandemic has sadly taken so many lives and effected families deeply, it is important to recieve the highest quality of support when it comes to bereavement.

Here are 3 businesses that will offer nothing but assistance, advice and quality of care of the highest order.

Green Willow Funerals 

Penarth Times:

Green Willow Funerals Ltd is pleased to introduce and host Grief Chat as a support feature on on our website.

Grief Chat was founded in 2017 in response to the long waiting times experienced by many bereaved people who are trying to find support for themselves or for their bereaved family members or friends.

Most people expect to be very upset or distressed when someone close to them has died. What takes many people by surprise is how strong the emotions can be, how they can change very quickly, and how long they last. People around you may seem to think you should be ‘back to normal’ after a few weeks or months. You might appear to be your usual self to other people, but you know that on the inside, you are not even sure what normal is anymore.

Everyone grieves in a way that is unique to them and their relationship with the person who has died. Well-intentioned people may say to you, ‘time is a great healer’. Sometimes, however, it can seem that life is more difficult as the weeks and months go by.

We know that no one can understand exactly what your loss feels like to you. But we do understand that it is sometimes easier to talk to someone outside of your friends and family about grief and the impact of bereavement of your life and this is why we offer the GriefChat service.

GriefChat was created by bereavement experts and by clicking on the GriefChat box below, you can chat directly to a specially trained bereavement counsellor. GriefChat counsellors are experienced in supporting bereaved people and will listen to your story, explore how your grief is affecting you and help you to find any additional support you might need. GriefChat is a completely free service and is available Monday-Friday, 9am-9pm or by email out of these hours.

GriefChat provides emotional support for bereaved people, access to trained bereavement counsellors and referral into other specialist bereavement services.
