Bereavement Advice & Support.
Coping with Bereavement
No two Community Companions services are identical but the intention is broadly similar in every case. Namely, to offer the practical help that can make all the difference - whether it's collecting the post or a repeat prescription, walking the dog or changing a light bulb.
Often family members might live too far away to visit regularly so Royal Voluntary Service Community Companions provide valuable company and friendship as well as making sure the person they visit is safe and well.
Omega is a progressive, end of life charity supporting the bereaved and caring families looking after someone with life-limiting or terminal illness. We believe that caring is everyone’s business. Many of the people we help are in crisis or have become socially isolated; some, including the frail-elderly are themselves near end of life.
We work collaboratively to help people to help themselves. We encourage peer-support and share information and coping skills. We help clients to address their personal priorities, we keep in touch with lonely clients and we provide purposeful, therapeutic paid work and volunteering opportunities.
Omega run a telephone based befriending service called Chatterbox.
A flexible, free, friendly telephone support programme; an Omega volunteer will keep in touch offering you:
A listening ear ,
A chance to find out more about local services ,
Help to access information and support.
A online voice communication channel for the Blind.
