The long-term impact of bereavement during Covid-19 and how funeral directors can help

As a funeral professional, you may currently be feeling frustrated and saddened that you can’t personalise a funeral or comfort and support families in the ways you previously could.

Coping with a loved one’s death is always painful, but meaningful farewells are even harder to achieve with current restrictions. How will this added dimension of distress impact how people grieve and their long-term ability to cope with their loss? What can you do as a funeral director to help their bereavement experience?

SAIF welcomes back Catherine Betley, managing director of Professional Help, which provides SAIF Support and SAIF CareChat. Catherine will offer suggestions for funeral directors to help a funeral feel more memorable and special to the family and highlight the work of SAIF Care. 

SAIF Care is a bereavement support package which includes a telephone bereavement careline and email support. It is available to clients of all SAIF Members who wish to access grief care and bereavement support.

Clients are able to access trained and qualified staff Monday to Friday from 9.00 am until 9.00 pm.
