Tips For Caregivers When Someone You Love Is Grieving

« Previous



  • Show you care by being present, listening, and not being judgmental.
  • Keep in mind that people are unique and that there is no one right way to grieve. Everyone deserves the time and space to go through the process in any way that feels right to them.

Be supportive.

  • Include the grieving person in invitations and activities -- even if they have refused you before.

Be patient.

  • Try not to push people through their sadness.
  • Expecting people to hurry up and feel better will only hurt them more.

Educate yourself.

  • Read the information above about loss and grief to understand more what your family member or friend is going through.

Recognize that supporting others is difficult, stressful work.

  • It's more than okay to ask for help. It actually is smart!
  • If you're close to the person diagnosed, you yourself are probably grieving as well. So be good to yourself. Exercise, eat healthfully, and try to get a full night's sleep. Take needed breaks.
  • Be sure to find someone you can talk to.
