Grief doesn’t end with the funeral. Our Bereavement Resource Centre has been developed to ensure the caring doesn’t either. Laurie Blaikie is a registered psychotherapist and holds a master’s degree in Psychology with a specialization in traumatic bereavement. She has been providing counselling to families and individuals for 20 years and supports the families we serve through their journey of healing.
In 1989 The Erb & Good Family Funeral Home opened a new branch of funeral service by providing ongoing support to families after a funeral. Our Resource Centre has since become a leader in bereavement support and a model for other agencies in our community. We take pride in providing limitless support to families with one of the top experts in the field.
Laurie accommodates the needs of our wider community while maintaining a high level of expertise and accessibility. Services are provided on a fee for service basis adhering to a standard fee scale, as well as a sliding fee scale to all people in our community regardless of where one’s funeral was held.
Our Lending Resource Library contains books and videos related to the grief process. The material is available to anyone in the community.
Community Education is provided in a number of forms. Workshops, speakers for workplace settings, churches and community groups are a part of our program.
