Coronavirus – a year on: Adult sibling bereavement during the pandemic
Tuesday 23rd March 2021 marked one year since we first entered a national lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. Over 150,000 lives have been lost in the UK to the virus. Sibs offers heartfelt condolences to all adult siblings who are grieving during this incredibly difficult time. At a time when you most need company and a hug, you may not be able to have this. Feelings of loneliness are heightened. For siblings who may have spent a lifetime putting their needs aside for the benefit of others, this is especially hard. Some siblings will also be supporting a disabled brother or sister through loss and grief too.
