A DIRECT LINE FOR PEOPLE WHO GET IN TOUCH WITH CANCER
Information about oncological disease is often difficult to deal with or hard to find. This is why we have decided to create a direct link for people who meet personally or not this disease. Dial 0522/34.97.34, an answering machine records your message with your name and phone number. A psychologist will call you back to listen, give information, share concerns and possibly fix an appointment to meet you.
BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT GROUP
Hospice assistance provides bereavement support to patients and their families. Bereavement is a very painful phase of life that, in many cases, requires psychological help. The Hospice provides both support group (free) and the help of a psychotherapist for individual interviews (payable).
The group represents a very effective form of support that let you express your suffering and share your feelings, and makes you feel welcomed. The group meets on Tuesdays from 18.00 to 20.00 in Reggio Emilia, is made up of 8-10 people and has no religious affiliation. Society today has cancelled the rites of mourning - the support group is one of the few places where you can express your suffering, without forgetting, but rather integrating loss into your life.
The Social Cooperative Madonna dell’Uliveto that runs the Hospice, since 1998 has collaborated with AUSL of Reggio Emilia. The agreement, covers a 65% cost of services and provides the assistance of General Medical Practitioners, medicine supply, sanitary aids and specialized advice.
