Hospice Malta has recognised the difficulties and pain of the many families who have lost loved ones due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many unable to say their final goodbyes. For this reason, it has announced that it is extending its bereavement support to support all the families of all the COVID-19 victims.
Hospice Malta CEO Kenneth Delia said that “Throughout the years, Hospice has supported many patients suffering from end of life illnesses. Hospice also supports the relatives and families of these patients through bereavement support. We are extending the service to support the families whose loved ones passed away during this terrible pandemic”.
Hospice’s bereavement support will be offered on a one-to-one basis and it will be delivered either at Hospice Malta premises, the family’s home or via Zoom/Skype, depending very much on the situation, as well as the necessary restrictions so as to ensure the safety of both families and Hospice employees at all times.
The persons delivering the bereavement sessions are psychologists or social workers trained and experienced in bereavement support.
Families who would like to avail of this support may call Hospice on 21440085/6 or email [email protected], from 08:00 till 16:00, from Monday to Fridays.
