Ask Them What They Need

Grief is different for everyone — the experience, the response, the healing. Sometimes a simple acknowledgment can serve as a powerful reminder that one is supported. Don’t be afraid to ask, “How can I/we be of support right now? What would that look like?” Offer suggestions, like regular check-ins, flexibility with work hours (as appropriate), temporarily lightening the workload, etc.
