How to Support a Friend After the Loss of a Parent
Losing a parent can be devastating. If you have a friend who recently lost a parent and you want to be there during this difficult time, the advice offered in this video clip can help.
From preparing meals and offering to babysit to offering practical assistance with funeral arrangements, there are a number of ways in which you can demonstrate your support. The most important way in which you can help your friend is to let him or her know that you are here and that you always will be, listening intently any time your friend opens up about his or her feelings and what he or she is going through.
While many aspects of funeral planning are personal and will need to be handled by your friend, you can offer to research funeral and cremation service providers to spare your friend time and energy during this time of need.
