Grief is a natural reaction to losing a person you care about. There’s no “correct way” to grieve. Our experiences of grief are unique. Grieving can be painful. It can’t be instantly fixed and it won’t just disappear. However grief and heartache will lessen and there will come a time in the future where you will be able to cope better with your loss. ECC run a therapeutic Bereavement Group and has supported many carers over many years
