Care recipient (cr) is grieving the loss of a loved one

Try: #ask the cr to serve as a volunteer at charitable organizations or for causes that the deceased loved one supported for example if the loved one liked animals ask the cr to volunteer at the local animal shelter if the loved one enjoyed the senior center ask the cr to volunteer there if the loved one liked books ask the cr to volunteer at the library #after the cr has chosen a few organizations or causes to volunteer for makes calls to discuss arrangements and a time for volunteering write down the time organization and location on the cr’s calendar #make arrangements to drive the cr to and from the place where the volunteering will be done talk about the loved one while driving be supportive listen to the cr’s reminiscing and highlight the positive things that are said talk about how the deceased loved one would appreciate the cr volunteering for his or her favorite charitable organizations and causes talking about the loved one while driving gives the cr time to express feelings and also provides a natural time boundary for the discussion #volunteering can be done as often as the cr wants to or is able depending on where the cr chooses to donate time

Materials: Pen and paper list of charitable organizations and causes the loved one supported and their phone numbers calendar
