Services for Families

Consultations with Families — 1 to 2 hours

Peg supports families by offering educational consultations prior to the death of a loved one. This time is devoted to helping families create their own plans for after-death care. Often the family and others who will be involved in the care will meet to have all their questions and concerns answered. Families and friends report a feeling of relief when a plan has been made and various tasks and roles identified.

At the time of Death

If the family feels they need more support, Peg will be present for a period of time directly after the death. She will guide the family through the care of the body, washing, dressing, moving (if necessary), and positioning the frozen gel packs. Usually after two or three hours the body has been laid in honor and the family begins the vigil.

Throughout the Vigil

Peg will be available by phone and email for any questions or concerns that may arise. She will visit again at the request of the family.
