Bereavement is a universal experience and grieving is a natural part of life. But in the modern western world, death remains a taboo subject and must be handled with the utmost sensitivity.
Death is one of the most distressing and stressful of all experiences and no matter what the circumstances, we all react differently. None of us know how we will react until it happens. There are many practical issues to manage when someone dies. There are several organisations who provide specialist bereavement advice on what to do after a death, on what you may be feeling and practical support at this difficult time.
