About James Reid Funeral Home, Crematorium & Reception Centre
James Reid Funeral Home offers an in-house Bereavement Support Program to our community as well as to the families we serve. It’s not articles online. It’s not a monthly mailing. It’s a relationship built with one of two Bereavement Support Providers through monthly phone calls or visits for a year after the service (or for six hour-long sessions for self-referrals from the community). It’s a safe place to learn what you don’t know you don’t know about the grief process. With a listening ear, it’s exploring the ways you may be feeling you are going crazy, and finding assurance that you’re not.
It’s also finding a grieving community. James Reid Funeral Home leads a monthly Public Information Evening and spring and fall Walking Through Grief Group, co-hosted by Hospice Kingston, at Lemoine Point. Everyone is welcomed by the Support Providers and by peers for whom Bereavement Support is breaking out of the default isolation. It’s the chance to sit, walk, share and listen with others who are there too.
