Helping a Bereaved Friend or Relative

November 30, 2014
If you know someone who has recently lost a loved one, you may have some questions about how he or she should be approached. Here are some things that you should keep in mind to help a recently bereaved friend or relative:
  • Respect his wish to be alone but let him know that you are available when he is ready to communicate about his feelings.
  • Remind him not to neglect his health — bring his a hearty meal and encourage him to engage in healthy activities.
  • Offer to run minor errands for him, like walking his dog, and help in the funeral preparations.
  • Talk less and listen more.
