Death away from home

We are never truly prepared for the death of a loved one. You may find that even when you are expecting death in the near future, you may not be prepared for the feelings of grief that can accompany it. When a death occurs away from home, it may feel even more traumatic.

In addition to coping with your feelings of loss, a death away from home introduces an additional level of stress. The mere logistics of planning to bring your loved one back home can be overwhelming, and if you are traveling without the immediate support of others, the mountain may seem too high to climb. There may be a lot of paperwork ahead, and a lot of delays. When a death occurs away from home, it is important to know that we can help you through every step.
