About the Alder Centre
The Alder Centre provides bereavement care and education for anyone affected by the death or a child of any age.
The loss of a child, regardless of how old you or the child is, is one of the worst things that can happen. No-one will be able to tell you exactly how it feels because everyone reacts and feels differently. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. The experience of grief can involve a range of feelings, including numbness, disbelief, anger, guilt, sadness, emptiness, relief and denial. Feelings can be so mixed up that you might wonder if you will ever be able to enjoy life again. This is a perfectly normal reaction to the range of emotions involved.
