(HealthDay News) — Significant life changes, from losing a loved one to developing a health problem, can be particularly difficult for seniors.

The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests how to help:

    Learn about how people grieve and the normal stages of grief.

    Listen to your loved one speak about losses and feelings, even if you’re not sure what to say. It’s OK not to say anything, just to listen.

    Make a specific offer to help, rather than asking what you can do or waiting for the elderly person to ask.
