Anam Cara Remembrance Day 2023

MIDDAY | 5th | NOVEMBER | 2023

Every year Anam Cara hosts a Remembrance Event  giving families an opportunity to remember and honour our children in a special way.

At Anam Cara we understand the intense grief, loss and loneliness that every mother and father has to endure after a precious son or daughter has died. We know there are no words that can take away that pain. All we can do is let you know you are not alone.

Book of Remembrance…

Our thoughts are with recently bereaved parents and their families, many who have found themselves isolated and alone on their journey after the death of their precious child.  We hope they too will find the strength to carry them through their journey of grief and loss, in time finding their own unique way to cope and survive, knowing their child will always be remembered and carried in their hearts.

Thank you for joining Anam Cara today, your support of our virtual event is very much appreciated.

A time for Reflection

8 Minutes of Self Care

Grieving is exhausting, in the early days of our loss it is also all consuming! Even for mothers and fathers further on in their grief, there are times of the year we can become overwhelmed. Self-care is so important, being kind and gentle to ourselves. We commissioned this short meditation for you, it will take about 8 minutes, all you need to do is make yourself comfortable, take a deep breath and just be in the now!
