Families First provides you Aftercare Services at no additional cost.  We focus on various needs which you and your family may have after funeral services have been completed.

We are available to meet with you in person or by phone to review notifications which Families First completed on your behalf. According to your requests, notifications may have included CPP Death Benefit, CPP Spousal Benefit, CPP Children's Benefit, Revenue Canada, Income Securities, life insurance policy claims, and employer notifications.

We are also able to assist with additional tasks including, but not limited to:

  • scheduling bank appointments
  • cancelling credit cards
  • helping you make appointments
  • assisting to locate community resources to help where needed
  • record keeping suggestions
  • anything else we are able to offer guidance with

We have many bereavement resources you can access, including bereavement groups, individual counseling, and grief literature which is available online and within our facilities. Our commitment to aftercare has no time limit, as we continue to work with you until all estate questions and tasks have been completed.

Aftercare Services are available from any of our Team members but are led by Families First's Aftercare Coordinator, Kim Labute.

On-site preparation means that we can react quicker to your changing needs. It is now more convenient for your family to use our reception facilities between 5pm and 7pm and daytime receptions can be prepared on-site.  This is all possible because of Maureen Shepley, one of our own Team members, who has been working in the food service industry for over 20 years. She is also the creator of our famous cookies. We now offer hearty deli sandwiches, hot options, salads, vegetable/fruit trays and a wide variety of specialty desserts.
