Support and care for parents grieving the loss of a child.
On a weekly basis we offer condolences and grief support to bereaved families with on-line condolences provided by Funeral Homes such as yours. Recently we have been inundated with requests for grief counseling for both adults and children and would like to make sure we are available to as many families as possible.
At one time or another all of us experience the death of someone we love; a parent, child, spouse, sibling, friend, or a beloved pet. We all have stories of grief. No two grief journeys are exactly the same. But professional counselors say there are general stages of bereavement we all experience. Regrettably, we need to deal with the practical aspects when death occurs. Funeral planning, securing airfare, renting a car. I want to provide some tips to make these arrangements easier.
A series of links pertaining to grief and bereavement.
Grief is an essential human experience. We’ll all experience grief throughout our lives, some of us more than others. Just as grief affects all of us, it also pervades all aspects of our lives. When we are grieving, our thoughts are consumed by our loss. Food doesn’t taste as good. We’re less motivated to do things we used to find fun. It takes everything just to keep going through the motions of daily life.
Grief can cause isolation, anxiety and depressive symptoms and some individuals engage in substance use to numb the pain. The Recovery Village offers comprehensive treatment for dual diagnosis based drug and alcohol rehab, eating disorder and mental health treatments tailored to the patient’s specific needs.
