Spiritual support can also be given to the bereaved trough church members and other close friends. The bereaved also require financial support at times especially when the situation is serious and requires attention of professionals such as doctors, therapists and counselors. IN OUR CASE, Tom and sue have been getting support from different people and organizations. Shaping the bereavement and the bereavement partner support Group played a major role in supporting the two but their assistance was not enough forcing tom to look for professional counselor to see if the condition of Sue would improve. Different groups provide different types of support system. Due to distance barrier, SUE and TOM are unable to receive support from family members and also their social circle is limited hence no much of assistance coming from them.

completely face the loss of their services due to the loss in an individual’s life (Currier, Niemeyer, 2008). Although it has been said that closeness in relationship only exists amongst spouses and immediate kin (Folta and Deck 1976) and that other relationships including care givers are not recognized, there are a close relationship between a patient and a nurse that can affect the nurse in the event the patient dies under her care.

They require the proper training in order to equip them with well and prepare them for eventualities such as death of their patient and the ability to accept and understand that this is only her job hence the only relationship that exists between them and the patient is just but professional relationship and not emotional relationship.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
