    Default reach out to

    He treated his son so badly while he was alive, and does "reach out to" mean "contact someone" or "show interest"? "Reach out for" seems to "contact", but I'm not sure.

    Brandon's father(ghost) - When the doctor said I was dying, I tried to reach out to brandon.
    Tell him I was sorry. I--I was so scared. After the way I treated him.

    You can interpret this to mean that he tried to approach Brandon in order to attempt a reconciliation.
