How to Support a Person That Is Grieving


As a provider of funeral services, we have had our fair share of first-hand experiences with people in grief. Here are some ways to support mourning a loved one:

  • Reach out
    You may be afraid to say something wrong to a grieving loved one and make matters worse so you end up avoiding them. But in truth, people in grief just want your support. Don’t be afraid to reach out and offer your condolences.
  • Listen
    There is nothing more comforting than knowing that someone is there to listen to you wholeheartedly in times of mourning. Many people cope with the trauma by telling their stories repeatedly. Do not give your advice if you are not asked.
  • Offer help
    Do not ask if there is anything that you can do to help because the bereaved may be hesitant to request it. Instead, be specific as to what you can do. You may offer to do the grocery shopping, meal preparation, or house cleaning.
  • Understand
    You have to understand that it may take a very long time for the bereaved to mourn. There is no time limit. They might grieve for months or years and all you can do is be there for them.
