In brief: Offer help

Anger often comes from frustration from not being able to accomplish goals.
How can you give this person practical help in getting things done? Can you connect this person with other resources (for rides, group support, financial support, assistance with communication, attending recreational activities)? Practical help getting things done will be much more appreciated than empathy.
