Loss of a partner

Finding help with grieving after the loss of a partner or loved one is a key step in being able to move forward, but sometimes that first step, knowing where to go, is the most difficult.

Q. Beverley
I would like to know if you could help me to find out if there are any organisations for people who have lost partners. I live on the central coast, two hours north of Sydney.

A. We are sorry for your loss. If you are looking for an organisation which can help you deal with the grief that you are feeling from the loss of you partner, then we suggest contacting one of the following:

    I think Social Workers in public hospitals might be able to put you on the right track. I know a friend of mine saw a Grief Councilor at Westmead Hospital who was very helpful. It is a very hard time for partners when they have lost a loved one. When my husband died I dealt with it by getting out of the house as much as possible and meeting up with friends. Keeping busy also helps. Although it has been 5 years since his passing it still feels like it happened yesterday.

    A lot of people support those who are grieving for a few months then forget about them. Some of it is they are embarrassed as they don'tknow what to say. Sometimes you just need somebody to talk to and you are happy as long as they listen. It is probably worse when a spouse passes away as you get excluded from my invitations. One of the reasons is they are jealous and afraid their partner may pau you too much attention.
