The Bereavement Support Service is an important part of the care the Hospice provides, not only to relatives, friends and carers of patients we have cared for, but also to people within the Rossendale community who have bereavement issues. They have an open referral system. Appointments usually last 50 minutes. The amount of sessions offered will be decided between the Nurse and the client. On average this is usually between 4-6 sessions.
