Our funeral homes have been serving families for more than a century. It’s our job to help make coping in the immediate aftermath of losing a loved one a bit easier. Planning and arranging ceremonies to celebrate the end of life is what we do every day.
However, you don’t have to wait until you need us during the most difficult times of life to benefit from the guidance we can provide. We want to get to know our community — and we want you to get to know us — in other ways.
We established our Community Speaker Bureau to offer workshops and seminars on different topics of interest. We present to hospice organizations, nursing home or hospital staff, social services programs, nonprofits, and civic associations. The subject depends on the audience.
Advanced funeral planning
Learn how planning a funeral in advance can remove the emotional burden from loved ones and ensure that the person who has passed is remembered the way he or she wished. There are financial considerations, as well. We can tell you how the process works, the questions to ask, and take away some of the fear people might have about approaching it.
Choosing cremation does not limit the ways you can remember and honor your loved one. You may or may not decide to have a service for the person who passed. There are also several choices for what to do with the remains. Let us explain all of the options.
In the 21st century, we all have them. Digital assets are what’s stored on devices such as computers, tablets, cell phones, social media profiles, online shopping accounts, and everything that lives “in the cloud.” Just like your financial assets and physical possessions, management of your digital property deserves attention in estate planning. Don’t be overwhelmed by the prospect; we can outline what everyone of any age in every stage of life needs to know.
Grief and bereavement
Perhaps the most natural topic you’d expect us to know a lot about is anything related to grieving the loss of a loved one. We understand that the circumstances around every death are not the same. Nor is the way people experience bereavement. We can provide some guidance on how to be sensitive to any situation and support someone who is mourning.
It’s our goal to be a resource for you and your organization. Let us know what’s on your mind and how we can help educate your group. Our customizable workshops and seminars can be conducted either at your facility or in one of our five locations throughout New Hampshire.
