Bereavement Support

Recognizing a need that extends beyond the funeral we provide the families we serve as well as the community at large with bereavement resources, information and access to programs which we hope are a source of help, understanding and support.

The Edwards Family Centre was the first provider to address this unmet need and continues to pioneer development and support in this regard by taking a leadership role in the community and establishing partnerships with existing and new community resources thus becoming a larger network of caregivers.
