Our commitment to those we serve does not end at the conclusion of the funeral service. Unlike most other area funeral homes, our aftercare is not made up of only brochures and referrals to others. Because your adjustment and healing are important to us, we offer many options of support and encouragement by The GriefCare Place, a separate non-profit organization which houses a lending library available for your use complete with books, videos, audio-cassettes and a wide range of community resources. Grief meetings and specific small groups meet on a regular basis offering understanding of grief issues and additional support for you and your family. The Center is one of only a handful of its type in the entire country and is also located on Darrow Road in Stow. To visit The GriefCare Place, CLICK HERE

GRIEF SUPPORT GUIDE MANUAL
The guide pictured right was written and developed by Lou-Ann Redmon, R.N., to be used by pastors, churches and caregivers in beginning or enhancing their own support groups. The book contains many years worth of knowledge and expertise laid out in a series of lesson guides, discussion guides and handout sheets. To order your copy, please send a check for $50.00 made payable to The GriefCare Place, 4499 Darrow Road, Stow, OH 44224. (this amount includes shipping and handling).
'Until Healing Comes,' for any adult who has experienced the death of a loved one, sensitively and gently introduces the griever to the normal grieving-healing process. It is designed for those who initially are dealing with their grief and provides information and support through at least twelve months. Familiar thoughts are explored: "Am I losing my mind?," "Will I ever heal?," "Are these feelings normal?," "Where's God?," and "No-one understands."
Support Groups supplement 'Until Healing Comes' and are tailored specifically for meeting the need of widows, widowers, parents, other adults, teens and children. They are non-denominational and those of strong faith or those of none may come comfortably.
Services at The Center are free. It is funded entirely by donations, memorial gifts and fund-raisers. Because it is a charitable, non-profit organization, all donations are tax deductible under IRS section 501(c)(3).
