Introducing New Ways to Help You Cope With Grief
Article Posted on
Grief is very real and no two people experience it in the same manner. Arbor Memorial’s ArborCare Bereavement Assistance Program is an important free service offered to all the families we serve, to assist you with practical guidance, literature and emotional support anytime it’s needed.
AborCare recently introduced a comprehensive Internet and telephone support service to help you navigate your unique grief experience. By logging in to our confidential and secure online resource, you can access hundreds of articles, self-assessments, blogs, podcasts, calculators and more. Topics include:
- Grief counselling
- Coping with loss
- Providing help in a crisis
- Taking care of yourself after a traumatic event
- Financial advice
- Legal advice
If you’re facing a specific challenge and could use some guidance or support, you can also call a toll-free number to speak confidentially with a caring, professional consultant. You can connect with an English- or French-speaking counsellor, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Our online and telephone resources compliment the services available from your Arbor Memorial branch’s ArborCare specialist. For example, if you have been left the responsibility of finalizing the estate, you may be surprised by the number of details requiring your attention. ArborCare professionals can provide invaluable insight to help you in your duties, including:
- Death benefit application
- Selling of vehicle
- Distribution of assets
- Government agencies
- Bank accounts
- Credit companies
ArborCare staff can also provide comforting reference materials and referrals to local bereavement services.
Online, on the phone or in person – ArborCare ensures that you have support during your time of grief, whenever or however you need it, for as long as you need it.
