Living with Loss


Living with Loss

The Irish Hospice Foundation has produced a number of helpful videos dealing with loss and bereavement. This video entitled, ‘Living with Loss’ is four women who share their story.

Antoinette’s husband Paidraic died from cancer
Mary’s husband Frank died by suicide
Kate’s son Kieran died from cancer
Mary-Alys’s husband Dermot died after a long illness

They talk about what it was like after their loved one died and how they were affected by the loss. They tell us what they found helpful and how they have managed to come through the early difficulties of bereavement.

In the video they mention the benefit of the Bethany Bereavement Support Group and how it helped them to communicate their loss. Bethany Bereavement Support Group is a voluntary parish based ministry which aims to help the bereaved and grieving.
