Suffering the loss of a loved one is a difficult, emotionally challenging experience. During such a time, it’s crucial you have a support system to help you get through it. For this reason, the compassionate professionals at Shirley Brothers Mortuaries & Crematory in Indianapolis, IN, host a monthly event called “Coffee and Chat.” During these meetings, they discuss everything from funeral plans to coping mechanisms that will help you through this difficult time in your life. October’s event, “Navigating Your Journey Ahead,” will cover a few of the topics below. 

4 Topics in October’s Coffee & Chat Event

1. Paperwork

After a loved one passes, you will be responsible for much more than just funeral plans. You will also need to handle all types of paperwork pertaining to the deceased’s estate, insurance, and more. Such a task can be both overwhelming and confusing. During October’s Coffee and Chat, the staff will discuss tips to manage this paperwork in a streamlined, effective manner to minimize your stress.  

2. Your Financial Status

This is especially common if the deceased was your spouse or parent. The team at Shirley Brothers Mortuaries & Crematory will explain how your financial status will change during this time, and they’ll offer tips to help you through the transition. 

3. Funeral Pre-Planning

Being responsible for creating funeral plans might make you interested in thinking about your own. “Navigating Your Journey Ahead” will cover the benefits of pre-planning for your own funeral, such as ensuring your wishes are respected and handling your finances ahead of time so that your family is relieved of the burden in the future. 

4. Learning to Reach Out

The death of a loved one can take a huge toll on your mental and emotional well-being. However, relying on your friends and family during this time plays a crucial role in the recovery process. October’s Coffee and Chat will discuss ways to make socializing and reaching out to others easier, as well as offering tips to get the support and love you need during the grieving period.
