The death of someone we love can be the most challenging time in our life. This is uncharted territory for many of us and often we’re not sure what to say or do.
Grief is our natural response to any loss and particularly to the death of a loved one. Grief is all encompassing and affects us in every aspect of our lives: physically, emotionally, mentally, socially and spiritually. There are times when grief is totally overwhelming and lasts longer than you or others expect it to last. Over time, grief will soften but it never truly goes away. There are no timelines, no rules. We all have our own way of grieving.
But you don’t have to be alone. Sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself is find a way to talk about your loss with someone who will simply listen and acknowledge your grief. We have trained volunteers to support you, your family and your friends through the end-of-life and grief journey.
