A variety of helping tips and methods to help you adjust to your loss.
Westcott Funeral Home offers several forms of aftercare assistance to those who have suffered a loss:
Surviving Your Loss: During this season of renewal: is offered shortly before Easter. It is designed for those who now must face this holiday plus the coming spring and summer seasons and the social obligations they bring.
Surviving Your Loss: During this season of change: is offered around Labor Day to assist those facing the autumn and winter seasons and the feeling of isolation that it brings.
Surviving Your Loss: During the Holiday Season: is offered at the difficult time of year for anyone who has suffered a loss.
We begin these sessions at 10 AM with a presentation and explanation of the feelings you may be experiencing and the dangers of them and the ways to face them in a healthy manner. This is followed by small group discussions where you can share with people who have also suffered a loss and probably are experiencing the same issues. This is followed by a lunch where you can break bread with new friends and receive physical nourishment to accompany your emotional encouragement. There is no cost to these sessions and reservations are not necessary.
We also offer Surviving Your Loss: A six week journey: For six consecutive weeks (usually following the quarterly one day presentations) we meet on Tuesdays between 4-5:30 Pm at the Cottonwood Senior Center. Each week has a different theme and a variety of helping tips and methods to help you adjust to your loss. Many friendships are made and these gatherings have become quite popular. A light supper follows. Again, there is no cost and no reservations are necessary.
Our facilitator for all of these sessions is Elaine Rankin, PsyD, R.N. whose enthusiasm is encouraging and compassion is comforting to those in pain.
Because we care about the well being of every family we serve, you will receive continuing care and support through our Circle of Friends program after the funeral.
You can sign up to receive monthly grief and recovery newsletters to appear in your email inbox, full of great information, stories, poems, and inspirational quotes that will help you throughout this difficult time.
The program tracks with you for a year following your loss, and of course, your privacy is of utmost importance to us. We will never sell or use your email address for any reason except to get this valuable information to you.
