RECOVERY HAVEN CANCER SUPPORT OPERATES THROUGH LEVEL 5:
As we are in another extended period of lockdown and restrictions, people are understandably incredibly anxious, worried, and finding it more difficult to cope. This is particularly true for the more vulnerable in society – among them, cancer patients, their families, and carers. At Recovery Haven Kerry, we want to reassure you that we are still here for you. While taking every precaution advised, we are here to offer emotional support and practical help to those affected by cancer, their families, or carers. While much of our group and therapy work is currently on hold due to Covid 19, we are still offering phone support, counselling, and a range of online classes (Stretch and balance, pilates, stress management, look good feel better programme, men’s support group and Cancer Thrive and Survive 6 -week self-management programme) throughout Level 5. So, if you or someone you know needs support, email: email@example.com or phone 066 7192122

2. As recommended in our statement last March, there should be no removal to the church the evening before.
3. People not attending the funeral liturgy should avoid congregating outside the church building or around the hearse. For the sake of the great majority trying to keep to the public health guidelines, we ask people, difficult as it is, not to approach the bereaved in the church grounds or cemetery to sympathize.
4. As per the public health guidelines regarding social and family gatherings, there should be no wakes or large gatherings for prayers in the house of the deceased nor gatherings in cemeteries.
5. Support for the bereaved can be expressed through social media as an alternative to attending the funeral.
