Aftercare Services

Many people are unfamiliar with the term "aftercare"–at least as it relates to funeral service. In the counseling professions, aftercare involves ensuring an individual navigates times of personal transition; and it means much the same to us. Basically, our aftercare program is split into aspects: grief support and practical assistance with estate-related issues.

Getting to the Heart of Loss: Essential Grief Support

There's nothing quite like grief; it can turn your life upside down and leave you feeling as if you've lost your mind (and no one cares). Of course, that's simply not true; we certainly care about your mental well-being during grief and bereavement. And to prove how much we care, we've put together excellent online grief resources in our Grief Support section. Not only that, should you need a referral to local grief counselor or grief support group; we can provide you with one.

Getting Down to Business: Practical Assistance

Grief is only one part of all you'll have to deal with after the death of a loved one; you'll also find yourself having to handle all the necessary paperwork regarding their passing. From the headaches of insurance claim forms, estate settlement issues and the required filing of a final income tax return; to the completion of acknowledgement and thank you cards; you can bet the weeks and months following your loved one's passing can feel extraordinarily busy. But have no fear; we're here to assist you.

Our practical aftercare support can make a big difference in your stress level. We invite you to contact us with any issues or questions related to the passing of your beloved family member.

You're Not Alone

We're very familiar with the emotional and practical aspects of dealing with the passing of a family member, and our aftercare services reflect our commitment to caring. Should you have questions about our aftercare services, call us at (618) 344-0187.
