The Luginbuel family of funeral homes is committed to ensuring those who face grief don’t have to make the journey on their own. We believe aftercare service is just as important as a funeral service to help those who have lost a loved one begin the process of healing and moving forward.
Aftercare is a continuation of Luginbuel support services. Few events are as painful as the loss of a loved one but many people find that sharing their stories and memories with others who have experienced the same kind of loss is essential for recovery. We believe our funeral homes can be the center of grief support and education in communities. Our directors want to assist people with what can be a difficult and painful transition.
Our funeral homes provide several programs to help support survivors.
- Dedicated aftercare program
- Monthly "Hope" bereavement newsletters
- Life transition classes
- Community education programs
- Holiday remembrance programs
