death & bereavement - coping with grief

 

Coping with grief and adjusting to the loss of a loved one can be traumatic.

 

Denial and shock are natural reactions. Understanding the grieving process

 

won't make it any easier, but it may make a long term difference to how you

 

cope. The job of the Funeral Director is to make the arranging of the funeral

 

as easy and stress free as possible. Making decisions at such a time can be

 

very difficult.

 

Where to get help

 

Sometimes, family or friends cannot provide the level of help needed. CG Moody staff can assist with

 

getting the support you need. Everyone reacts differently to death and as a consequence, there are many

 

organisations in the community who provide support at different levels. A few are listed below.

 

Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement: www.grief.org.au
 

 

Centrelink Social Workers: www.centrelink.gov.au
 

 

Better Health Channel: www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au
 

 

National Association of Loss & Grief Victoria: www.nalagvic.org.au
 

 

Loss and Grief Counselling - WorkSafe Victoria: www.worksafe.vic.gov.au

 

funeral service - making it personal

 

People are more commonly choosing to view a funeral as the celebration of a life. C.G. Moody and 

 

Daughter encourage the various personal requests of the family. These sometimes include cultural or 

 

religious rituals. Catholic, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist - all can be catered for. Or the service may 

 

become more personal in nature. Adding personal touches can be as simple as placing personal items 

 

inside or on top of the coffin or playing the deceased's favourite music. This will add to the atmosphere 

 

and make for a distinctive occasion. Most personal requests can be accommodated by speaking to our 

 

staff. Family and friends can be involved - to read a poem, religious passage or deliver a eulogy. You may 

 

want to make a more elaborate arrangement, giving a special place to organisations which the deceased 

 

has belonged to. CG Moody can arrange with the minister or celebrant to meet with you to plan the 

 

service fully.

 

writing eulogies - it's easier than you think

 

Writing and delivering a eulogy combines two fears that many people have - the death of someone close 

 

and speaking in public. If the thought of writing and delivering a eulogy sends you into a blind panic, take 

 

heart, there are ways to make the experience both memorable for the bereaved and less stressful for you.
