Our service does not end simply because the funeral or memorial service is over. At Dingmann Funeral Care, we provide a number of resources as part of our Aftercare Program. Our Aftercare program includes:
We meet with all widows and widowers one to four weeks after the service to answer any questions and assist with anything we can, such as life insurance, social security or veterans benefits.
We are proud financial supporters and volunteers to Hearts of Hope Camp and Teen Retreat. This is a free camp for school aged children and their care givers. It assists children through their grief and empowers caregivers with the knowledge of how they can help.
We send out a helpful book series titled “The Reality of Grief” to all widows and widowers, or to any family member that requests it. This is a quarterly series that includes a total of four books by grief specialist, Doug Manning.
Before the holiday season, we send out “Grief and the Holidays”, a helpful guide to help families through the first holiday season without their loved one.
We provide a free lending library, complete with books and videos to assist in understanding and working through grief. The lending library also includes materials on the funeral service profession.
We also can assist families in connecting with support groups and counseling.
We now offer E-Aftercare through our Stepping Stones program. Anyone can sign up for this program by clicking below or by contacting us by phone. After signing up, you will recieve a welcome email in 1-2 weeks, followed by newsletter every month that will walk with you through the journey of grief for the next year.
