Helping suddenly bereaved people
If you are not self-isolating with the person or people you are helping, you will face practical challenges during times of social distancing.
Many people who are bereaved, although not all, value face to face support, and hugs from people they love.
In a situation when this is not possible, providing support by phone, video call and messaging may be the only option.
It can be very comforting and prevent someone feeling isolated.
