When Faye’s Mum and Aunty Mary sadly died she came to Primrose Hospice & Family Support Centre for support around coping with her bereavement after a dramatic change in her life.
Faye was very close to her Aunty, they used to lots together like drama, dancing and gymnastics.
“When my Aunty died it felt like I was closed off and I didn’t want to know anybody. I didn’t want to know the world properly and I felt like I couldn’t communicate properly as I could always talk to Mary and open up to her.”
Faye has received bereavement support from our Family Support Team which has helped her to come to terms with the changes in her life. Through her sessions she has made a special memory box with photos and memories of her family which she can look back on in years to come.
Since receiving support Faye has since gone onto do some volunteering in our Redditch charity shop.
“Coming to Primrose has built my confidence back up and the care team I work with have noticed the positive changes in myself since coming to Primrose. Having support and volunteering at the shop feels like a massive achievement in my life. I’m hoping one day to find a job I can do at Primrose.”
Unfortunately there are lots more people who, like Faye would benefit from bereavement support.
That’s where you come in.
Did you know £15 could pay for one family support session?
