Aftercare

Grief doesn’t stop after the funeral, which is why aftercare for the bereaved is so important. Our staff are trained to help families through their road to recovery, and we have the resources and expertise to help you move forward. If you are ever in need of aftercare, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.

 


 

Aftercare

The care we provide to our families does not stop once the funeral service is over.  Following the service, our Family Care Advisor, Lori Moore, will contact the family, see if we can be of any further assistance, and provide you with an aftercare packet that answers many of the “what do I do now that the service is over” questions.  Also at this meeting, Lori will return any items to the family and obtain signatures for any necessary documents such as insurance documents.  The family will also receive a memorial gift from our Needham-Storey-Wampner family.

Other ways we reach out to our families throughout the years include luncheons, our Annual Christmas Service and, our biggest event of all, our Walk to Remember.  Continue to visit our website and/or Facebook page to learn about upcoming events and activities.



Grief Resources

The death of someone we care about can be one of the most difficult experiences of life. Words seem inadequate to describe how painful the grief we feel can be. It is often much more challenging than we expect and what others seem to think.

These articles will help you understand something about the grief and how we can help ourselves and others through the difficult process.

These articles were written by Dr. Bill Webster, our Director of Grief Education, and are part of a comprehensive library available on our Grief Journey web portal. Dr Bill is the founder and Executive Director of the Centre for the Grief Journey. He earned his doctorate at the University of Toronto in 1990 and has been awarded the prestigious Fellow in Thanatology by the Association of Death Education and Counselling (ADEC).

Dr Bill`s knowledge of grief is not just in theory, but from a very difficult personal experience. In 1983, Bill`s young wife died suddenly of a heart attack, leaving him not only to cope with his loss, but also to raise his 2 sons, who were only 9 and 7 when their mother died. Dr Bill has become a recognised author, a renowned international speaker and seminar leader, and brings 30 years of experience in the field of grief support and counselling.
