Because of the pandemic, people's relations with one another have altered. Everyone must keep a certain amount of social distance while avoiding excessive contact. They should stay at home as far as possible to limit the spread of the virus. These activities are vital, but they can be difficult for those in sorrow.

Millions of people have died as a result of Covid-19, and many others have died from natural or man-made causes. Friends and relatives are left to grieve for them alone. We at Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home have some tips for how you can help grieving people, even while you maintain social distance.

1. Call Regularly

Checking in every day on mourning, rather than just calling sometimes, is an excellent way to convey your support. Try to start up a discussion when you call. Discuss current topics about their health and day, and confirm that they are consuming nutritious food. It will show that you care about their well-being and wish to help them through their time of grief.

2. Act as a Source Of Distraction

If you can't bring them to the movies or take them on a drive to deflect their attention from their suffering, you could find other methods to engage them. Use video conferencing or online games to keep kids entertained for a short period. By diverting a grieving person's attention to these activities, you can help them feel less alone.

3. Provide Real-Time Assistance

When individuals are depressed, they tend to skip meals and disregard their health. Order a couple of dinners for them or ask their neighbors to check upon them.

These are just a few examples of things you can do to help others while adhering to social distance rules. If you are looking for information on preplanning a funeral, contact Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home at (928) 855-4949 or (928) 753-2555 or use this form to write to us.
