Bereavement is different for everybody, and it takes as long as it takes. Many people think of bereavement as occurring after a loved one dies but there are many situations involving loss that can result in a similar emotional response, for example: losing a job or home, relationship breakdown and loss of a pet.
There are certain stages that most people will move through but at different times and ways.
We have added here a link to the hospice, and a link to a 20 minute online talk about the grieving process, where one man talks about his two Grannies and their experiences of life and bereavement.
The link below provides a booklet which reassures and supports you through these difficult times.
If you are in need of any bereavement support, you can contact Silverline for help:
