Grief Supporter Tip #2: Continue to check in on them.

Grief Relief Tip

Keeping in contact with folks in grief is so important. After the first waves of caring and concerned people starts to wane, grievers are often left to cope alone. Let your loved one know you are still thinking about them. Send them a text or an email. Make a call and know that they may not answer the phone. They may not call back, but keep trying anyway. Offer to take them to coffee or the movies or for a walk. Let them know it is okay if they say no. They may be too tired, too stressed, too sad. One day, though, they will feel like going with you. Keep checking on them.

Please remember this is one suggestion for how to help support those in grief for the holidays. Please feel free to review more of our tips here in our Blog section. And, please always remember, you don’t have to journey alone…even as a supporter!
