St Mary's Hospice @stmaryshospice
We are proud to be part of the national conference @hospiceuk and are sharing the difference our Bereavement Support Facebook group makes hoping other hospices and families can benefit from tapping into this wonderful support #HUKConf17.
Lynsey Lawson, St Mary’s Family and Bereavement Support Service Lead/Social Worker explains: “In June our team submitted an abstract to Hospice UK focusing on our new way of providing bereavement support (our lovely online support group) and described our hopes of providing support and comfort in a place where people feel most comfortable.
We were delighted to find out that our abstract had been shortlisted and selected for discussion at this year’s conference and we were invited to attend and complete a poster presentation regarding our piece of work in a hope to inspire others. I look forward to sharing with the conference the importance of responding to emerging needs and not fearing the digital age. Throughout today I have been thinking of our online group a lot and I would like to thank everyone within this group for providing support, comfort and friendship to one another… you are all very special x” Good luck Lynsey!
