With guest presenter Tiffany Hansen, Licensed Funeral Director
For the few days between death and burial or cremation, families have the option to care for their deceased loved one’s body themselves. This tender act can aid in grieving, bring a sense of fulfillment, and help families, including children, to meet death as something normal and natural.
Some families have the energy and support they need to care for their loved one’s body at home. Others are better served by working with a funeral home that allows them to participate in parts of the process. What’s important is that families know their options, and are assisted at each step to make the choices that are right for them.
This workshop is designed for family and community members, end-of-life practitioners, and funeral professionals. It will focus on ways that these groups can work together, for the benefit of bereaved families.
