Help for the Holidays

The holidays are upon us. For many, the holidays are a happy time of the year when families and friends congregate and celebrate. But when a child, sibling, or grandchild has died, the bereaved usually find their energy levels have fallen and the holidays a time to be especially difficult. Friends and family are concerned and want to be helpful, but usually are uncertain how they can support you. Too often they are afraid they will say or do the wrong thing, so they do nothing, which can make them appear uncaring. Following is a list of ideas how you can provide support to a grieving family during the holidays (and remember that grief doesn’t last just one holiday season). Open your heart and be a Compassionate Friend this holiday season!
