Aftercare

 

We are here to help before, during and after the funeral.

Aftercare is extremely important to us; which is why we are the only firm in Elmhurst to sponsor an aftercare support group. The group is facilitated by Wendy Neal, LCSW of the Neal Center for Griefwork & Healing and is free of charge and open to anyone who has suffered a loss. Meetings are held each Monday night from 6:30-7:30pm at Epiphany Evangelical Lutheran Church, 314 W Vallette, Elmhurst. Our staff can also recommend top grief therapists if you prefer private counseling.

Here on our site, we encourage you to view our Guiding Grief module to help you cope with your feelings and to understand that you are not alone.

Ahlgrim Funeral Home has an onsite grief library, full of great resources for you and your family. Our monthly newsletter, LIFELINE, is mailed to families and offers helpful information on grief issues. At Ahlgrim, our services don’t end at the funeral.

At Ahlgrim Funeral Home, we are here for you before, during and after the funeral. We know how difficult the months and years after losing a loved one can be, and we are here to help.

Ahlgrim provides exceptional bereavement resources to the community year round; from a complete grief library to information on a variety of support groups and special programs.

Losing a loved one is always difficult. During holidays, it can be even more difficult. We are here for you whenever you need us.
