Many men feel the need to be the strong one at the time of a loved one´s death. Men are often conditioned with the idea of “being brave their entire lives. We often expect men to cry at the time of death, but not much after that. We may perceive their lack of tears as them not being impacted by the death. This is not the case. Men sometimes have a harder time crying than woman because of how they were raised.
I work in a residential home and would like some tips on how to handle one of our residents deaths. When we lose a resident it is my resposibility to notify the familly ( of the lost one), I would like some advice on how to handle this situation because I am not very experienced And find it hard to break such news. Thank you.
