Annual conference tackles grief and bereavement

This year Rennie Grove Hospice Care’s annual conference takes a slightly differentCathy Sosoli, Head of Rennie Grove's Family Support Services, is keynote speaker at the charity's annual conference perspective, broadening its scope to discuss sensitive issues around bereavement, loss and grief.

The charity’s Education team has brought together experts in and beyond the field of palliative care, alongside people willing to share their own personal journeys, to offer delegates a thought-provoking insight into something that affects us all.

Although not taking place until October 18 in the Clare Charity Centre in Saunderton, Bucks, the charity is taking the opportunity to launch this year’s event during Dying Matters Week (8 to 14 May). 

Education Lead for Rennie Grove, Jo Clarke, explains: “We support the whole family during a patient’s illness and help thousands of families come to terms with bereavement, loss and grief.  In a society that struggles to discuss death and dying, we believe it’s vital to facilitate those discussions. Not only can this help patients to have a ‘good’ death, but it can also help those left behind with the process of grieving.”
