In conjunction with the launch of the inaugural Grief and Bereavement Conference in Singapore on 31 October 2018, the Singapore Hospice Council (SHC) has published two books to raise community awareness of this topic and for individuals to know where to seek help and get support when necessary.

Caring for Yourself and Others After a Death

This book is meant for both people who have lost a loved one and those supporting them. For the bereaved, it provides a brief overview of what different people may experience and tips on taking care of oneself. For those supporting the bereaved, it provides suggestions on how to care for them in different contexts and situations. Whether a loss happens in a family, school, workplace or community, there are ways we can be more supportive and compassionate towards people in grief. This book is supported by Temasek Foundation Cares. Errata (3 April 2019)

When a Death Occurs – a Guide to Practical Matters

When a Death Occurs: A Guide to Practical Matters sheds light on some of these frequently asked questions about the practi­cal and legal aspects relating to a death. This handbook provides an overview on funeral planning, certification of death, and asset distribution to assist the bereaved in understanding the practical processes involved after a loved one’s death. This book is published in partnership with Ang Chin Moh Foundation. It is a valuable resource contributed by the collaboration between SHC and volunteer law students supervised under A/Prof Ruby Lee.

If you are a neighbour, grassroots volunteer, member of an interest group, user of a community club or care centre, this brochure can help you support community members who have lost a loved one, or support your community members when facing one of the members’ death.
