Grief support during COVID-19 lockdown
When someone we care about dies, we generally find comfort from the support of our family, friends and community. The current lockdown disrupts these usual sources of support, including being unable to gather around when our family member is dying and attending tangihanga or funerals. This may have an impact on our grief.
Our bereavement teams are here to support those of you in our service as you navigate grief in these unusual times. Please contact us by phone or email if you would like some assistance. Don’t wait until the end of lockdown, our bereavement teams can offer a listening ear.
Listed below are some resources that you, friends or whānau may find helpful:
