What to do After Losing a Loved One

El Paso Resource Guide – Coping with Losing a Loved One

The death of a spouse or loved one is among the most stressful events in a person’s life. The Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale puts some science behind that statement, rating death of a spouse as the most stressful event and the death of a close family member as the fifth-most stressful.

Anxiety comes from all directions — the emotional emptiness of loss and the practical challenges of arranging funerals, welcoming family members, dealing with belongings and so much more. In an effort to ease some of that burden during such a difficult time, we have compiled a series of resources for people coping with the death of a loved one. Whether you are a spouse or child of the deceased, or simply a friend, there is something useful here for everyone.

Florist

forbes-forbes-law-el-paso-what-to-do-lost-loved-one-resource-florist

Flowers originally served a purpose in funerals before mortuary sciences and embalming were commonplace. Today, flowers help provide comfort and lift the spirits of grieving families. Lillies are the flowers most associated with funerals. They are considered to represent the innocence restored to the soul of the dearly departed.

Candy is not typically connected with funerals in the United States, but it is part of the Chinese tradition. Mourning families will present a piece of candy to guests at the funeral; they are expected to consume the candy before leaving the funeral.

Florists and candy shops in El Paso are at the ready to provide a sweet touch during a sad time.

Funeral Home

forbes-forbes-law-el-paso-what-to-do-lost-loved-one-resource-funeral-home

The concept of funeral homes did not emerge in the United States until the 20th century. Families typically accepted the responsibility of planning funerals. Burials were normally on family land, rather than in a cemetery.

Now, there are many excellent funeral homes and directors who ease tremendous burdens for grieving families. Traditional full-service funeral homes and lower-cost alternatives are available in El Paso.

Organ Donation

There are almost 10 million registered organ donors nationwide, and in Texas an estimated 13,000 people await transplants. Some choose to join the donor registry around the time a loved one passes away, as they consider their own mortality and the value in contributing to the greater good.

But if a loved one passes and is not on the registry, it can be up to the family to make the call regarding the donation of organs. Once that decision is made, there are organizations at the ready to facilitate this life-saving but time-sensitive action.

Pet Adoption Service

forbes-forbes-law-el-paso-what-to-do-lost-loved-one-resource-pet-adoption

When a loved one dies, their pet can provide a strong emotional bond to the deceased for those coping with the loss. However, as time passes, the reality of caring for a new animal can extend patience and resources beyond the breaking point.

There are numerous animal shelters and rescue groups in the El Paso area. If it is your preference, contact them first to inquire if the shelter is a “no-kill” shelter.

Therapist

forbes-forbes-law-el-paso-what-to-do-lost-loved-one-resource-therapy

There are some differences between psychologists and therapists, though both strive to improve the mental health of their clients.

Psychologists have an advanced degree in psychology, can diagnose disorders and often will work with a psychiatrist, who is capable of prescribing medication. Therapists can include psychologists but can also be social workers or life coaches. They provide guidance and support but may not be able to do all that a licensed psychologist can. There are many options for both in El Paso and a person can choose the one they feel is best for them.

Social Worker

Social workers can be valuable partners of families dealing with a loved one’s end-of-experience. They are trained to help deal with ethical dilemmas, financial stress, emotional stress, grief and bereavement and more. Social workers are often members of a hospice care team, but also can be employed separately. The following organizations may be of benefit.
