We understand that this is a difficult time and we hope that the following information is relevant to you.
“Walking together through loss” We are a church-based group but there is no expectation of any affiliation or belief
Interim is a group for people who have been recently bereaved. We are for that “in-between” time, that time between familiarity of life shared with another, and readiness to take up a different life, alone. This is a time change, of maybe the most difficult adjustment of your life.
Interim meet on the second and forth Thursday’s of each month between 10.30am – 12 noon at the Broadwater Parish Centre, 117 Broadwater Road, Worthing, BN14 8HT. Please contact 01903 823916 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org
See leaflet below for further information.
The bereavement service, part of the family support we offer, is available to any relative or friend of a patient who has died under the care of St Barnabas House, whether in the hospice or in the community.
We also offer support to those who have been referred to us by another hospice.
