Helping you and your family one step at a time.
The National Hospice Organization and its standards document recognizes the significant role of the funeral professional in collaborating with the hospice team at the
time of death. Catholic Burial & Cremation Society preferred funeral home providers appreciate the trust that families and hospice workers place in us and we
constantly strive to be deserving of that trust. At no time will family members be without support. The strong attachments and trust developed in one supportive
environment (hospice) are shared and transferred to another (CBCS Remembrance Planners) as the family moves through the process of dying, death and bereavement.
Hospice Care includes care of the patient and family prior to the time of death, at the time of death, and care of the family during the bereavement period. For this
reason we have become an integral part of hospice care by bridging the gap between the time of death and bereavement care. When you consider the philosophy of hospice and
funeral service, it is clear why the continuum of care provided by our professional staff is a "natural extension" of hospice care. The CBCS Remembrance Planners
and hospice caregivers work closely together in order to meet the total needs of families. With greater understanding of each others care, areas of expertise and
resources, hospice workers and our Remembrance Planners work together to plan a course which makes for a more natural transition of care at the time of death and in caring
for the survivors in the months following the death.
