Loss of a loved one

There are many ways people cope with the loss of a loved relative or friend. Some cope very well while others find it extremely difficult to manage having such feelings as anger, fear, depression and constant crying.
Where children are involved, they too can be very confused at this time. There is no ‘best’ way to cope but there are ways to help those who are grieving.
Funeral homes regularly deal with such emotional situations and we have access to a variety of literature on the subject and links to reputable expert organisations that can help.

The following stages of grief are commonly experienced, although not everyone will go through all these stages:

  • Denial and isolation
  • Rage and anger
  • Rejection
  • Depression
  • Accepting the reality of the loss
  • Adjustment to an environment to which the deceased is missing, and reinvesting energy in other possibilities
