We Support Professional Caregivers

Professional caregivers include hospice staff members, clergy, social workers, nurses, counselors and physicians. Regardless of their title, professional caregivers provide essential support to men, women and children suffering from loss. The Dignity Memorial® network acknowledges their vital role with a multitude of resources intended to inform and assist the professional caregiver.

Dignity Memorial

The Dignity Memorial Guidance Series is a series of free brochures, booklets, DVDs and CDs offering helpful advice to families coping with the loss of a loved one. Professional caregivers are encouraged to request these materials for patients and families in need of bereavement literature. For a list of topics in the Dignity Memorial Guidance Series,

If you are interested in obtaining hard copies of any of the brochures, booklets, DVDs and CDs, please contact your local
Dignity Memorial provider.

Dignity Memorial LIFT

Dignity Memorial LIFT® is a social support program that helps widows and widowers adjust to the loss of their spouses. The program gives members the opportunity to socialize with others who share similar feelings and experiences.

If one or more LIFT groups meet in your service area, we encourage you to mention the program to clients who may benefit. To learn if there is a Dignity Memorial LIFT group near you, click here.

 
CEU Credits

We’ve partnered with the Hospice Foundation of America to provide two free funeral education courses to hospice professional for continuing education credit.

The first course, “Demystifying the Funeral Experience: The Role of the Funeral in the Grief Process,” is a high-level overview of funeral care and the steps involved in a funeral service. The second course is “Funeral Customs & Rituals: Ways to Say Goodbye” and provides an overview of the funeral customs and rituals of the Catholic, Protestant, Greek Orthodox, Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist and Hindu faiths.

Both courses offer two hours of CE units and are taught by licensed funeral directors at participating Dignity Memorial® funeral homes. For more information or to see if a course is available in your area, click here.

 

We Honor Veterans

The Dignity Memorial network is proud to be the Founding Community Partner of the We Honor Veterans program, a collaborative effort of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Faculty Tours

Dignity Memorial recognizes that professional caregivers have many questions about the funeral profession. For this reason, we offer funeral and cemetery tours to those who work with families who are or will soon be in need of our services. The tours help demystify the funeral process and answer related questions. Professional caregivers emerge better equipped to guide clients preparing for the loss of a loved one or dealing with a sudden death.

Please contact your local Dignity Memorial provider if your organization is interested in a funeral home tour. In some areas, the tour is available as a formal course with available CEUs. To learn if a course is available in your area, please click here.
