David is finding it difficult to cope following the death of his mother. Although a year has passed, he’s still struggling with daily life. He has supportive friends and relatives but he doesn’t feel it’s right to keep talking about his mother’s death so many months after the funeral.
How can we help?
As a protection policyholder, David called our health and wellbeing service.
After giving David some time and space to talk about his mother’s death and how he was feeling, the counsellor discussed the cycle of bereavement and the process of grieving - reassuring David that his reactions were not unusual after a bereavement, and that everyone needs a different amount of time to deal with a death. The session also gave David some small steps to focus on – to help him through the grieving process.
David felt reassured that he could access the service again should he need additional support in the future - all at no additional cost to him.

Meet Dan and Charles
They run a printing company together. Unfortunately Dan is killed in a road traffic accident and things are now getting difficult for Charles.
Charles has double the workload and a number of customers are concerned that Dan is no longer managing their business. Despite Charles’ best efforts, they’ve left him for a rival company. The loss of those customers amounts to a 25% drop of the company’s profits. Charles isn’t coping and doesn’t know how long he can continue running the business with things as they are.
How can we help?
As a Business Protection policyholder, Charles can use our key person replacement service for help and support in recruiting a Business Development Manager or possibly a Key Account Manager – either on a temporary or permanent basis. Identify HR & Resourcing Solutions could also offer Charles some business coaching - helping him to think about the future of his business and what direction/options he’d like to follow. All services offered would be bespoke for Charles.
Charles can also contact our health and wellbeing support service to receive bereavement support and help in dealing with losing his best friend and business partner – all at no additional cost to him.
