The death of a spouse is one of the most difficult things a person will face in a lifetime. Whether the death was sudden from a heart attack or accident, or after a long illness, life after the passing of a partner can be difficult to comprehend or navigate. For many, the assistance of family and friends is enough to get them through the mourning. However for others different types of help might be necessary to assist them to move on with life. This is why as one of the premier funeral homes in Mesa AZ, we at Mountain View believe that anyone widowed should consider a support group.
You Can Be Yourself
Widows and widowers that join support groups can say things in the group they might not be able to say to family or friends. Unlike the family members and friends who are also mourning the loss of a loved one, the support group is an objective, understanding ear. This allows the widow to say what he or she needs to say without having to worry about the feelings of the person to whom she or he is speaking.
Understanding and Support
Support groups offer a nonjudgmental outlet to work through the different stages of grief. Those in the group with you have experienced or are experiencing similar things. You can say and do what you need to guilt-free without worrying about hurting others or people misunderstanding what you’re saying. You can also gain knowledge and ideas on how to keep the memory of your loved one alive while still finding a way to move on with your life.
As a long time member of the funeral homes in Mesa AZ community, Mountain View Funeral Homes has the experience and dedicated staff that can help you find the support group that fits your needs. Our staff is trained to identify those who may need help. Please don’t suffer in silence if you need help contact one of our professionals and we will do everything in our power to help you.
