Bereavement Support line

In Blog, Families, Health, Older People by Denis Naughten

Today the Irish Hospice Foundation has launched a Bereavement Support line. The freephone number is available from 10am to 1pm Monday to Friday. The number is 1800 80 70 77

 

Many people have experienced and will experience the death of someone they love during the COVID-19 pandemic. It may have been a COVID-related death or a death from other causes. People may also be finding a previous bereavement more difficult at this time.

 

While we may be seeing reductions in the number of deaths connected to COVID-19, we know that people’s pain and grief does not diminish as quickly.

 

In the face of such loss and trauma, the Irish Hospice Foundation Bereavement Support Line, in partnership with the HSE, has been launched to provide connection, comfort and support, in these exceptional times.
