The Cornerstones of Care

The Cornerstones of Care

The Foundation of the Healing Path

Dignity

Dignity includes honoring all the lives of those whom we love as well as our own life story. Dignity also involves valuing life without regard to accomplishments or shortcomings as well as recognizing grief as a common experience for all people.  

Ritual

When you feel overwhelmed, it is helpful to share your thoughts and feelings through ritual actions. Rituals can help you express yourself, remember your loved one, and begin the process of healing. A few examples include journaling, praying, visiting a special place, looking at pictures, listening to a memorable song, etc.

Meaning

The death of your loved one will often force you to reconsider what is meaningful in your life. Putting your world back together following a loss is the central process of grieving. It is easy to be distracted and consumed by daily busyness, but it helps to reflect on what is really important to you. 

Legacy

It is common to fear that your loved one will be forgotten by others – or worse, that you will begin to forget them over time. You can take steps to ensure that their special talents, personality, and accomplishments will be remembered. You can keep their legacy alive.

Support

The pain of grief can make you wonder if anyone understands your loss. Feeling alone at times is normal. What is helpful in times of loneliness is to receive support from people who understand. But you can also feel less alone by showing compassion and care to others. Fight your loneliness by giving and receiving support. 

Acceptance

A key part of healing is accepting in your head as well as in your heart that a loss has occurred. A common misconception is that you should seek closure following a loss – that grief just somehow ends at a given time. Acceptance actually occurs over months and years. While the pain will lessen over time, accepting your loss is an ongoing, lifelong process.
