Whilst staying safe at home, volunteer Heather continues to support families who are going through a bereavement. 

"We are in such unchartered waters these days and many of us are feeling the loss of everyday life and our usual roles.

"I very much miss the camaraderie of working with others; I miss bouncing ideas and issues off others in the bereavement team and of course being able to meet clients who are now voices at the end of the phone! 

For those of us unable to carry out our usual activities, we must take care of ourselves and those around us; be that 'shielding' as I am, by staying at home, or simply obeying the requirements from government - however frustrating these might seem. We can then, God willing, get back to the hospice and still have useful roles to play!
