Knowing how to support someone who’s lost a parent can be difficult and people often find it easier to say nothing at all than to confront the emotions and feelings face on. 

In this week’s episode, Kat and Emma discuss how to support someone that’s lost a parent both emotionally and physically, from mowing their lawn to ordering takeaways for delivery at their homes. They share their own experiences about what’s useful both straight away after the loss and now, years later. 

But as well as sharing tips and advice on how to support them, they also highlight the importance of looking after yourself too. You can’t pour from an empty cup. 

At the end, Emma and Kat share their top five tips for anyone looking to offer support to a grieving friend or loved one.
