We offer support and therapy to our patients’ families and carers.
It is important that you take care of your own health, even if you are busy looking after someone else's health. Being healthy is not only important for you, but it helps the person you care for too.
Families and Carers
Emotional & Practical Support
At Butterfly House we extend all supportive therapies available to our patients to their families and carers as well. See our ‘Patients’ pages for more information.
Bereavement Support Group
Grieving is an ongoing journey of slowly beginning to adapt to life being different, without the person who has died. This can be one of the most profound changes in a person’s life. It takes a great deal of energy to cope and most people find it exhausting and challenging.
The South Bucks Community Hospice’s nurse led Bereavement Support Group helps bereaved family members or carers to come to terms with their loss in the safe company of others in a similar situation. The group offers confidentiality, time and a safe space for you to ‘be’ as you need to be, however you feel.
