We understand that when someone close to you has died, everyone needs to say goodbye in their own way and their own time.
For some, there is a compelling need to spend time with their loved one, to bathe and dress them, to sit with them, to talk to them… simply to be close. For others, saying goodbye at the time of death is enough. We offer a range of choices about saying goodbye.
You may choose to have home-based care. This choice makes it possible for your loved one to lie at home or somewhere with a personal connection that will be comforting to them and to you. Together with friends and family, you can privately celebrate their life and mourn their loss for up to several days if you so choose. Choosing to care for your loved one in this way means they are never alone nor with strangers; you accompany them on their final journey.
You may choose to have your loved one stay at our premises in our coolroom until the day of the funeral. You can arrange a time to come and spend with them in our lounge if you would like to.
The choices are yours.
It takes time to come to terms with the death of someone you love and even longer to decide how you wish to honour them. There is no rush to make these decisions. In your own time and if you wish, you can perform all or some of the tasks associated with the funeral.
We support you to do as much as you feel comfortable doing and will sensitively assist when required. Most importantly, we give you the opportunity to say goodbye in your own, meaningful way.
