Grief Support Services

Upon the passing of your loved one, the dedicated professionals at Universal Mortuary Service, Inc. offer continued grief support and grief resources for you and your family. When your loved one passes away, grief is an understandable response to this life transition. Holding a funeral or memorial service for your loved one is a positive first step in the grieving process. Your family and friends can share their memories and say their goodbyes to the deceased.
In the days, weeks and months that follow a funeral or memorial service, some people need continued loss support services. We're able to connect you with many local and national support groups that offer loss support and crisis help. These support groups offer a comforting and non-judgmental environment in which you can express your emotions throughout every stage of the grief process. One of these grief resources is the Center for Loss and Life Transition. This private organization is dedicated to advancing the understanding of and compassion for people experiencing grief and loss. Crisis, Grief, and Healing is another place where adults can discuss their grief experiences and learn more about the grieving process. GriefNet is an online community of people on the Internet dealing with grief, death and unexpected losses of their friends or family members. You can also receive helpful information from Willowgreen, which is a leading provider of information and inspiring messages for topics such as illness, dying, loss, grief and caregiving. They also discuss life transitions and spirituality.

In addition to these grief resources, you can also look to organizations such as the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) and Growth House, which is a part of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization. Call us at Universal Mortuary Service, Inc. for more information about grief support.
