Care staff get bereavement support
Staff at Birch Green Care Home recently took part in an interactive seminar to help them cope with bereavement in the workplace.
As part of Springhill Care’s ongoing commitment to training, Lianna Champ, Managing Director of Champ Funeral Services Accrington, visited Birch Green after a delivering the seminar their sister home, Springhill Care Home in Accrington.
The seminar defined grief, explored the common reaction to those suffering from grief and much more.
Lianna, a grief care specialist spent time with staff to help them understand some of the best mechanisms to cope with grief and loss in a positive way, her aim is to enhance the quality of life for elderly people in care home environments by educating their employees.
With over thirty years’ experience, Lianna is the author of the book ‘How to grieve like a champ.’
Feedback from the seminar was very positive and we are planning to hold more seminars in the future.
