Grief Counseling

Grief is the natural process that one goes through after suffering the loss of a loved one. We at AmericanFuneralHomes.com realize that mourning a loved one is a painful and personal experience that extends well beyond the funeral. That is why we are committed to providing support, guidance, and education to, the families that we serve, persons in the community who are grieving, and professional caregivers. 

The AmericanFuneralHomes.com Program provides the following services:

Our full-time bereavement staff is specially trained in grief and loss, and understand that this is a difficult period of readjustment. A grief counselor is available to families during and after funeral services. We lend a compassionate ear for mourners as they work through the feelings and concerns that arise during grief.

GRIEF SUPPORT GROUPS
We offer grief support groups in a wide variety of locations. Groups are designed to provide education about the grief process, while allowing members to share their unique experiences and learn from others in similar situations. These groups are open to anyone in the community who is bereaved at no cost.

This educational and supportive program provides practical tips on how to cope, along with an opportunity to honor and remember loved ones. This program is offered in a wide variety of locations at no cost to anyone in the community who is bereaved. Additionally, we offer a pocket journal to those who are grieving entitled "A Year of Special Days: A Journal for Coping with Grief." This is a guided journal to help the bereaved cope with major Holidays throughout the year. This book is now available through AmericanFuneralHomes.com for just $4.95 plus shipping and handling.
