Bereavement Support Telephone Befriender

The volunteer will provide telephone support to our carers aged 25 over who may be caring for a loved one at end of life, recently bereaved or coming to terms with a diagnosis of a loved one with memory loss.  The volunteer will enable the carer to build their emotional resilience by using active listening skills which validate the carers thoughts and emotions and to be a sounding board when needed; whilst encouraging them to develop and maintain healthy coping strategies which will aid them to adapt to their new life after a diagnosis or the death of a loved one.  We are looking for people who are available during office hours for 1 hour per week to provide ongoing support over 9 sessions.
