Parents of children and adults with developmental disabilities have many concerns when it comes to caring for their loved ones, and planning for every aspect of their lives is a way of life for these families. Those concerns also extend to what to do about end of life decisions, and one company is working to help make those decisions less worrisome, less painful and less costly, by helping to educate families and caregivers, through a series of lunch and learn forums, on why and how preplanning of final arrangements can bring peace of mind.
Dignity Memorial is North America’s largest provider of funeral, cremation and cemetery services and according to Wanda Lewis, community relations advisor for all of Metro-Atlanta at Dignity Memorial, the company recognizes the many on-going stresses and challenges families and caregivers of children and adults with disabilities face. As a result, it wants to help relieve some of that stress by educating and preparing families for sudden or anticipated end of life situations, through its Lunch and Learn Comfort Series, beginning in March. Seating limited! Must RSVP by February 24.
