Help With Healing Through the Loss of a Spouse

Building a Network of Care During Life's Lowest Moments of Grief and Loss

The Gift of Not Going Alone

When a family loses a spouse and parent, the emotional, physical, and financial burdens can be immense. Your support can reduce the sense of being overwhelmed for moms and dads navigating this difficult journey by alleviating pressures and providing the margin to process grief.

Finding Strength in Community

Families experiencing the loss of a spouse often struggle to ask for help. If you're in this situation, know that your community is ready to support you. These families need financial aid, emotional support, help with daily chores, and meal deliveries. A central hub for updates and milestones is crucial. SupportNow makes it easy to communicate and coordinate, ensuring timely and appropriate help.

Needs Change With the Journey, Sometimes Unexpectedly

Supporting a family after the loss of a spouse requires adaptability, as needs can change rapidly. Tasks that are manageable one day can become overwhelming the next, especially for families with small children.

Here are some key milestones that may trigger a change in support needs:

  • Immediately Following the Loss: Provide emotional support and help with logistical arrangements. Assist with daily tasks and childcare. Ensure the family has nutritious meals.

  • During the Initial Adjustment Period: Offer transportation for essential errands and appointments. Help cover additional costs, like childcare and household necessities. Reduce stress by taking care of errands and household chores.

  • Ongoing Support and Healing: Assist with the transition back to daily life. Help manage school and extracurricular activities for the children. Provide ongoing emotional and practical support to aid the family's adjustment to their new normal.

Support Organizers Need Flexible Tools

Selecting a tool that can adapt to the family's evolving needs is crucial. Platforms like SupportNow offer a central place for the community to rally around a family, stay updated on their needs, and provide the care they deserve.
