Family Support Services
A message from
Coordinator of Family Support Services
& Grief Management Specialist
As coordinator of “FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES” of Reed Funeral Home, I have a unique privilege of companioning individuals and families on their journey through grief. As funeral professionals, we realize the funeral and committal service are only the beginning steps in acknowledging the reality of the death of a loved one. Our program of care extends the traditional concept of caring for families at the time of the death and the funeral through the first year of bereavement. “FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES” is a continuum of care designed to promote healing through understanding and education while providing support and assistance in working through the grief process and readjusting to life without our loved one. Please contact myself, Carol Reed, if you are interested in participated in any of the workshops or programs listed below, (330) 477-6721.
“FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES" includes the following:
Transitions Support Letter
Published and distributed quarterly for those who are grieving and those who are in support roles. Publication mailed to each family we serve through the first year of bereavement.
Family Support Services maintains an extensive lending library of the most current resources on LOSS AND GRIEF. In grief, it is natural to seek information so we can better understand our grief and how it affects our lives or the lives of those we are supporting following the death of a loved one. It is through knowledge and understanding that we gain a sense of control in our lives.
