Memorial service for those who have suffered bereavement

Galway University Hospitals End of Life Care Committee will hold their annual Ecumenical Memorial Service this month to acknowledge loss, bereavement, and memories of loved ones.

‘Memories’ are the theme of this year’s memorial service, and invited back for it is guest speaker Dr Helen Greally, Director of Psychology and Support Services at Cancer Care West.

The service will be led by hospital staff with representation from Church of Ireland, Methodist and Islamic as well at the Catholic Faiths.

“As staff we welcome the opportunity to acknowledge the loss for the bereaved family together with honouring and remembering the special people whom have died in our care,” said Claire McHugh, Clinical Nurse Manager, Corrib Ward.

“The aim of the service is to provide a spiritual space to support families in the grief they are experiencing in a supportive and empathetic environment.”

The memorial service will take place at 7pm on Thursday, September 12 in the Galway Bay Hotel, Salthill.

Tea and coffee will be served after the service to provide families with an opportunity to meet with staff who cared for their relatives as well as to share their experience with other bereaved families.
