At CARE Funeral & Cremation Specialists, we provide aftercare services in the weeks, months, and years after the funeral.

Our aftercare services help families deal with the loss of a loved one. We offer grief programs, aftercare counselors, and books. We can refer you to the best specialists in our area. Our staff will assist in filing insurance, obtaining a death certificate, or getting all deserved benefits. We are here to help however we can.

Whether you have lost a sibling, a friend or a parent, our staff can provide useful information on how to carry on. Don’t face grief alone.


For immediate support and to learn more about the grieving process, view our Guiding Grief Interactive Support Video.

Here, you will be guided through steps to help you find answers to many questions about grief and suggestions for your own healing or help with someone else’s healing. Gain an understanding and acceptance of how necessary the process is, and know that you will get through it. Watch this video to know you are not alone.
