    #3 really depends on the person and on your relationship with them. Other than my absolute closest friends I would not appreciate people doing things ‘for’ me without asking me while i’m already coping with something like a bereavement.

    Rather than picking something and ‘just doing it’ pick something and ask. Instead of asking is there anything I can do, ask can I pick up some groceries for you while I’m at the shop? or Would you like me to bring over some food when I cook? People will be far more likely to say yes to something if it is specific and if you make it sound like they’re not putting you out rather than just offering in general and expecting them to ask for something, which makes you feel like you’re imposing.
