During the emotionally challenging period following the death of a loved one, there are many decisions to make, people to notify and details to organize. Mourners might ask one or two trusted people to help with these tasks in the upcoming days, weeks, and months. Asking for help when one feels overwhelmed or needs assistance during the grieving process is an important way to take care of oneself to include others who want to be of support.
