Introduction:There seems to be so many needs in every group of friends. Here are suggestions to follow when someone you know could use your help in some way. Follow these and add your own thoughts as you find out more of how you can help a friend in crisis.

  • 01

    Pets

    When a friend needs some time to devote to an immediate family situation, you can offer many things to assist them. Offer to take care of the pet in their home until they return and can care for that pet themselves. If you can't go to their home offer to have the pet brought to your house where you can care for it in exemplary manner for them. There is nothing like a friend in need coming to care for a dog or cat when an emergency situation arises. Call the person as soon as you know they might need your help with their pet.

  • 02

    Stay With Them

    Offer to stay overnight to comfort them in the times of emergency situations. Let the person know you are there for them in any capacity they need you to stay with them. If you cannot stay in their home invite them to come stay overnight at your house if possible. Being lone in an emergency situation is difficult for everyone. Offer to be with that person as long as they need you. If you cannot offer to stay with that person find a relative who might be able to step in to help for a day or two. There are agencies who can help if you inquire at the hospital in some areas.

  • 03

    Offer a Ride

    When you know a person has an emergency let them know you can take them to the hospital or Emergency Room when they need you to do that. Offer a ride to the doctor office if they cannot get there or back after a test or emergency crisis occurs. If you cannot drive them, find a resource that can arrange some transportation until you are able to be with that friend who needs you in a crisis time. Make every attempt to help the person with a ride they need. At the last resort call a taxi for them and then meet up with them when you can.

  • 04

    Call Them Often

    Check on your friend often to make sure they know you are thinking of them. Call the church to put them on the hearts of fellow prayer warriors. Ask the head of the prayer chain to include the person who you are calling about to be prayed for until the prayer of Thanksgiving can be said for recovery. Make sure you call the person to find out what little things you can do like take the garbage cans to the curb and back for a few days until they can do that for themselves. When you can tell other friends so everyone will know their friend is in need of comforting.

  • 05

    Bring Food

    So often a person who has heavy things on their mind forgets to cook or even to eat. When you know a person has a crisis situation, make a meal for them and take it to them so they can be reminded they have friends that care. Tell other friends and form a coalition to keep meals coming for everyday that person needs help in this way. If there are family members visiting, make sure there is enough food to feed them and your friend too. She or he will not have to supplement anything when you care enough to bring adequate food for all.
