It is important to seek help, after the death of a loved one. This may be as simple as having close friends and family to talk to, or renewing contact with people in your social circle. Even the company of a pet can provide valuable emotional support.
Everyone grieves in their own way, for their own length of time.
During the grieving process, it’s important to take care of yourself. Try to eat right, get adequate sleep, and avoid undue stress. Don’t be afraid to show your emotions or ask for support. It is common to feel shock, denial, anger, and depression, following a death. But if these feelings do not lessen over time, or cause extreme changes in behavior, professional therapy may be advised.
We at Voran Funeral Home can help.
We offer each of our families two free counseling sessions with Shirley Brogan. She is contracted with Maximum Living Consultants and works with our families. If you feel that you or someone you know needs help, please give us a call at (313) 928-2300.
