MHA marks National Day of Reflection 23 March 2021 with a short Zoom service conducted by our Director of Chaplaincy & Spirituality, Rev Chris Swift, taking part in the national minute's silence at 12noon. 

The pandemic has touched each and every one of us in many different ways. We have sadly lost residents, members and colleagues to the virus and many have also been infected with it so it felt important to spend time reflecting on those lost across MHA and beyond the MHA family.

As well as an internal resource for MHA colleagues on how to deal with loss and grief, we're proud to share that we've created a new booklet, 'Relative Recovery: Loss and healing during Covid-19' and a Welsh version. We also collaborated with RNIB to produce an audio version. The booklet includes information and advice about grief and guilt; what’s normal and when we should seek further support. There's a section on dementia and visiting in care homes and two short acts of memorial for those who missed opportunities to attend a funeral or memorial service; one is broadly Christian and the other is secular. There is a list of many other organisations that provide support to people who are struggling with loss.
