Do we recover from grief?
Hospice Educator, Lisa Patterson, asks the question, ‘Do we recover from grief?’
It is a question which comes up when delivering Life’s Questions to teenagers, and is about recognising that grief is part of the process of loss. In this video, Lisa talks about ‘Growing Around Grief’, a model by Lois Tonkin, which explains how we learn to live with grief.

Open House takes place in locations across West Suffolk and Thetford. Open House is aimed at people facing long-term and life-threatening illnesses, loved ones, carers, or those coping with bereavement.
The Bereavement Café, a drop-in group for anyone who has experienced bereavement. Losing a loved one can turn your world upside down and make you feel lost. Talking about how you feel can help.
Bereavement groups give people the opportunity to meet regularly with other people who have had similar experiences or concerns. All groups are facilitated by the Family Support team and what is shared remains in confidence within the group.
