What’s the best thing to say to someone who’s grieving?  It’s hard to know what to say that won’t make the hurt worse. A good rule of thumb is to remember the conversation needs to be about them, not about ourselves.

In this week’s Heartbeat from The Heart of Hospice, Jerry and Helen talk about the pitfalls of trying to comfort someone who’s experienced the death of a loved one and share tips on using a support response instead of shifting the attention.  Sometimes the best thing to say is nothing at all. Sitting in silent presence can be more helpful than any words.
