As the CEO and co-owner, along with my wife Cheryl, I would also like to personally address the reasons as to why we have relocated to our current location, No. 1 Hospital Approach, Broomfield, Chelmsford, Essex. CM1 7FA.
Like many of the families that reach out to us we have also suffered personal loss of loved one’s. My mother sadly passed away at a hospital and my father a hospice. At that time, I had very little experience in these matters and I had to visit my local High Street to arrange both of their funerals.
My father and then myself found the arrangement at the High Street both unnecessary and quite distressing.
With regards to our location at Broomfield we are here to offer free advice initially to all the families who are bereaved; about to be bereaved or indeed who wish to plan for the future. Today, people wish to talk more openly about dying and want to take control of their own end of life care which is not an easy conversation. Talking about death does not make it happen but being in control of your own funeral wishes can bring peace of mind to a family.
We have spoken to and received a warm welcome from representatives from the Macmillan Carers, Farleigh Hospice and the bereavement team at Broomfield Hospital all of whom understand the need to support and assist families dealing with end of life care and grieving families.
I will welcome you and any member of the public to pay us a visit so that we can introduce ourselves; share our knowledge and experience of this profession to show how we can help our community on its circle of life journey.
Paul Yarwood CEO Secure Haven.
