You Are Not Alone

We are here to support you through the entire grieving process, from the lead up, during and after the bereavement. You can often feel at a loss as to what to do especially when you are trying to grieve and there are practicalities to sort out as well.

 

We are always available at the end of the phone if you need to talk or simply want some advice. If you need guidance on what to do after a death please click on the PDF icon here to read more about the process. 

The pain of grief can often cause you to want to withdraw from others and retreat into your shell. But having the face-to-face support of other people is vital to healing from loss. Even if you’re not comfortable talking about your feelings under normal circumstances, it’s important to express them when you’re grieving.

 

While sharing your loss can make the burden of grief easier to carry, that doesn’t mean that every time you interact with friends and family, you need to talk about your loss. Comfort can also come from just being around others who care about you. The key is not to isolate yourself.

Turn to friends and family members. Now is the time to lean on the people who care about you, even if you take pride in being strong and self-sufficient. Rather than avoiding them, draw friends and loved ones close, spend time together face to face, and accept the assistance that’s offered.

 

Often, people want to help but don’t know how, so tell them what you need—whether it’s a shoulder to cry on, help with funeral arrangements, or just someone to hang out with. If you don’t feel you have anyone you can regularly connect with in person, it’s never too late to build new friendships. Click on the PDF icon to read more about the Grieving Process.
