Journey to Healing

Homestead’s Chaplain will:

  • Contact family members by phone or in person to assess specific bereavement needs
  • Create a care plan based on the assessment to meet those needs
  • Provide education on the grief process with bereavement mailings
  • Support through a memorial service held twice a year at each Homestead office to help families find closure for the loss of their loved one.

    Memorial service may include:

    • The release of butterflies or doves
    • The building of a bouquet of flowers, as the names of those who have passed are announced a family member adds a rose to a vase
    • The lighting of a candle
