Grief is our natural response to loss. It is normal and can often affect every part of our life. If you’ve been caring for a family member with a terminal illness, you will have been preparing yourself for the day their pain ends. But it doesn’t make it any easier for you.
You may experience a range of intense feelings such as sadness, anxiety, relief or numbness. Grief can also cause difficulty in sleeping which can lead to physical symptoms.
You are not alone. Our qualified professionals are available to support you, your family and carers through this difficult stage.
Anam Cara House Colac can provide bereavement follow up care; access to our bereavement support group; or referral to specialist care if needed.
