In-House Hospice Offers Help to Those Living With Grief During Holiday Time
Date:12/4/2008

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Although there are many issues facing Americans throughout the country -- the economy, job losses, the War in Iraq -- the Holiday Season is always viewed as a joyous time to celebrate with family and friends. But this holiday season may be even more difficult for those people who have experienced the death of a loved one. Their loss combined with the added stress this year, may now echo with greater sadness, emptiness and loss.

"While each person handles grief differently, there are several steps that all individuals can take to make this time of the year a little easier," explained Laura Wagner, president and CEO of In-House Hospice. "It's quite normal for people to relive their loss during this time of the year." The following are some of the suggestions that Wagner recommends to help people handle grief:

-- Be patient with yourself. Reduce the undue pressure of holiday expectations. Do things that have meaning to you and your family. Try to get through one day at a time.

-- Be with supportive, comforting people -- friends and relatives who understand your sense of loss and who will allow you to talk about your feelings.

-- Pay tribute to your loved one. This may include volunteering or donating to their favorite charity in their honor or attending a memorial ceremony.

-- Don't do too much. Feelings of loss can leave you fatigued. Respect what your body and mind are telling you. Lower your own expectations about what you can do at holiday time.

-- Take care of yourself. Exercise regularly, eat nutritious meals and get plenty of rest.

-- Avoid isolating yourself, but do give yourself special time alone.

-- Renew your resources for living. Look for joy in the moment and, if you find it, don't feel guilty about feeling good.

-- Be open to new traditions that allow you to meaning
