St Nicholas Hospice Care offers psychological support to people in our care nearing the end of life, those struggling to cope with their loved one’s illness and specialist bereavement services for adults and children.
We provide space to talk things through at any stage of illness, diagnosis or treatment. We offer assistance in helping relatives and offer in-depth psychological support.
We support newly bereaved families or individuals, including children who live in West Suffolk and Thetford, no matter how they are bereaved.
The bereavement service provides telephone support and advice, written information, and counselling.
For younger people and children
Nicky’s Way supports young people between 5-18 years of age who have been bereaved through long-term illness, accidents, suicide and sudden death. Support is provided both individually and in groups in the community, in schools and at the hospice.
Nicky’s Way also supports parents and those caring for and supporting bereaved children. Referrals can be made by the Hospice, GPs, schools, school nurses or directly by a child or parent.
A drop-in session for those coping with bereavement. The Bereavement Café is a space where people can talk about the pain of loss and also find courage and strength in knowing they are not alone.
