After Care

Welcome to Basic Funerals After Care Support

About Our After Care Program

Thank you very much for allowing Basic Funerals the privilege to assist you and your family with the final care for your loved one. We feel honoured to have been of assistance throughout the final planning process. We would also like to offer our care and support in the following weeks as you find yourself managing the grieving and estate settlement processes.

Assistance in Closing Affairs

Closing affairs can be an overwhelming and time-consuming process. Consider starting with our downloadable Executor Guide linked above. Many Canadian agencies can also be notified of the passing through an online notification tool, FinalDocx®, included in some of our Service Packages or available by itself as an add-on service. Call us at any time to add this feature to your arrangements.

Final Resting Places and Scattering Options for Cremated Remains

If you are unsure what options you have for a more permanent resting place, start with our webpage Choosing a Resting Place for Your Loved One. Contact us directly if you do not see information here that suits your needs.

Grief Resources

Information on the resources available to you can be found in our downloadable Executor Guide linked above. If you do not find the services you need here, contact us directly and we will help put you in touch with resources local to you, or specific to your needs.

Celebration of Life and Memorial Services

Without the restrictions and time constraints of holding a funeral with the physical body present, memorials are a much more flexible option to create a meaningful celebration. Visit our webpage Memorial Options for more details and to start the planning process.

Preparing Final Arrangements in Advance

During this difficult time, it is not uncommon to start thinking about our own final arrangements, and how friends and family members could benefit from having those arrangements in place before a passing occurs. If this applies to you, start with our webpage Why Pre-plan Your Funeral?
