Supporting Grieving Loved Ones

It’s not always easy to know how to support a family member or friend who has lost someone close to him or her. There are many ways you can be helpful, from dealing with funeral homes and other arrangements to simply listening. This video offers some advice.

When offering your support to someone who is grieving, it is important to resist the urge to try to fix what is unfixable. Instead, be a good listener and provide practical help with things like funeral planning and everyday household needs. If your loved one needs professional grief support, contact the funeral home for resources.
