Psychosocial and Bereavement Support

The Psychosocial Services team is dedicated to applying social work knowledge and skills competencies in palliative and end-of-life care to alleviate suffering and maximise quality of life for patients, their families and caregivers.

Besides managing social cases and providing individual and family counselling, the team actively networks with other agencies to provide holistic care and support to patients and their families.

Caregivers Support Programmes

The psychosocial department organises specific programmes for adults and children that address the emotional well-being of caregivers and their loved ones.

About the Grieving Process

Losing someone you love or care deeply about can be very painful. Grief is a normal response after someone dies. Everyone feels it in their own way. You’re likely to feel a range of emotions over time. At times, they may be very strong and can even feel overwhelming. Sometimes a memory or event, or a special date in the year, can cause fresh feelings of sadness. But the more you learn about grief, the better you can cope with it.
