Support Available

In addition to providing the best possible personalised care 24 hours a day for those in need of respite, symptom control or end of life care, The Butterfly Hospice Trust provides support to the families of our residents including bereavement support, therapy and remembrance events/services.

Therapy Service

The Therapy service offers professional one-to-one support and explore the challenges in dealing with a life-limiting condition or bereavement. Therapy sessions are available by phone, video call, face-to-face or group support, in a safe, calm and secure environment.


Remembrance Events

There are several events held throughout the year aimed at supporting those who have lost a loved one, offering an act of remembrance in a special way.

The annual butterfly release provides an opportunity to remember your loved ones in a unique and special way by releasing a butterfly in their memory at one of our butterfly releases. If you are not able to attend the butterfly releases you can purchase a butterfly to collect and release yourselves.

In addition to the butterfly release, The Butterfly Hospice Trust also participates in the national ‘Light up a Life’ campaign, taking place during the festive period, this event enables families and friends to come together in remembrance and to celebrate the life of the loved ones they have lost.

To find our more and view other events available throughout the year, please check our ‘Upcoming Events’ page and social media for the latest information.
