At EHRS we strive to support all of our members to the best of our ability and resources. While joining with our members in happy occasions, we also recognise that difficult situations can affect all of us at some time in our lives and we aim to be a first port-of-call if that occurs.

We employ a professional Community Care Practitioner, Val Joseph, who operates a Confidential Helpline with a dedicated telephone number. Anyone can call this number and be assured of strict confidentiality. If Val is not available when you call you can leave her a message and she will get back to you as soon as possible.

We experience bereavement and loss  as part of our lives from birth to death.

Grief is painful but not an illness and the symptoms that grief may cause can sometimes be alarming.

Bereavement is like a journey, which can at times be lonely, very painful and long.

For some people, it may be difficult to accept the loss, and there may be a sense of denial about the reality of what has occurred. It is not uncommon to think you see or hear the dead person and it can take some time for the full realisation to sink in.
