NES Bereavement Resources for Health & Social Care Professionals

New 'Anticipatory Grief' animation now available


We're delighted to announce that our Anticipatory Grief animation for health and social care professionals launched today. 

Anticipatory, or 'living' grief, is when someone experiences feelings of loss before a person dies – possibly long before the actual time of death. This video highlights how health and social care professionals can recognise & support those experiencing anticipatory grief.
