Technology And Your Grief Journey
Technology has taken the world by storm and there is hardly any aspect of our lives that remains untouched by it. Even in death, it has an impact on how people move through their grief and sorrow. Most people use social media today. And when a loved one passes away, they use these platforms to convey news of the demise, to people they know. There are various ways in which technology is woven into the grief journey…
- When a family member of someone very close to you passes away, you look for the most efficient way to convey the news. As mentioned earlier, many people post this information on their social media accounts. Funeral homes are also staying in step with this trend and helping clients post obituaries online.
- While some people feel that sharing such new via social media is very impersonal, the fact is that every person’s grief journey is different. Some feel that they can share their memories related to the loved one they have lost, via social media platforms. People they know post condolences and messages and this helps the family cope with their loss in a better way.
- Families with modest means may use crowd funding websites to build a funeral campaign and attract some funds to conduct the service.
- Some families also create memorial sites and there are some websites that actually provide these services as well. People can post a memorial page on sites such as Legacy and Remembered.
These are just some of the ways in which technology can be woven into your grief journey. For any more information, feel free to contact us anytime. At Charles J.
