Remembering someone you love


There can be many moments during the year when we miss loved ones who have died. For many of us, we miss them on a daily basis. Grief is hard at any time of year, but special holidays like Christmas, Hannukah, Diwali or Eid al-fitr for example, can be particularly challenging. 

If you’ve lost someone special, our community is here to help. Find tips on how to remember loved ones during the holiday season, and dealing with grief at important moments - and insightful stories from the people who work at hospices on Christmas Day.

New Year Walk to Remember

The New Year can be filled with emotions; excitement about the year ahead, apprehension about what the year may bring and sometimes sadness at the thought of a New Year without loved ones.

Take the time during the first week of January to reflect on the past year, remember loved ones and celebrate their life by getting together for a Walk to Remember.

You could choose to revisit a favourite place or discover somewhere new. Invite your friends, family or colleagues to join you and share stories as you walk together in memory.
