A.W. Lymn extends dealing with death training to care homes

Posted onPosted on 1st Feb

Funeral directors A.W. Lymn The Family Funeral Service is offering its services to care homes across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire with training sessions to help staff deal with the bereaved.

Company director Jackie Lymn Rose has been visiting care homes across the region for around six years to help staff feel more confident in supporting families and close ones during loss.

The sessions aim to break down the stigma around death and provide staff with knowledge on the appropriate steps they need to take after a resident passes away.

Jackie expects to hold sessions at almost 30 care homes this January and February.

“A.W. Lymn is proud to support other local services and ensure that those who pass away in care homes are treated with dignity and respect. For many, death can be a difficult topic to discuss especially when a relative or close friend is in care,” she said.

“The training sessions aim to open up discussions with the staff and give them the tools and knowledge necessary to support the bereaved.”

The training can also be used to help care home staff answer residents’ questions about what will happen to them when they pass away.

Each session lasts around one hour and covers a range of topics, including the legalities surrounding a death, through to emotional support and guidance, advice on funeral planning and attitudes to death in different cultures.
