The main thing you can do is to support her, listen to her and help her move on. For example, take her out or get her busy doing activities that she didn't get to do when she was in her relationship. That will help keep her from moping around the house feeling all alone. Don't let he bring herself down or lose her self-esteem. Essentially it takes time to heal from these things and there's only so much you can do.

I totally agree with the advice holly70 provided. The best thing you can do for her is just show her that she can feel close to somebody, that she can be gain and give love once again. Make sure you don't rush her into anything, it will maybe take a lot of time to help her recover from this, but so long as you just show her how much you care about her, and how much she has going for her, she'll be so appreciative of it and she'll be back to how she was before.
