Aftercare

We know that everyone experiences the loss of a loved one in a unique way. Our professional and knowledgeable staff can help guide you through the process of planning your loved one's final tribute with sensitivity and care.

In the event of the death of a spouse, child, family member or friend, survivors face a number of challenges that must be dealt with in order to move forward. The emotional turmoil that follows a loss can be so overwhelming that even the support of family and friends may not help relieve the grief and sadness. To assist a survivor in the grieving and healing process, Highview Memorial Gardens offers a variety of grief resources for counseling services, available upon request.

Preplanning

Prearranging a burial is a thoughtful gesture that relieves your family of undue financial and emotional stress. When a death occurs in any family or among friends, the grief can be tremendous and the healing time very long. By making your arrangements in advance, you and your family will have the peace of mind that all is taken care of. We have assisted many families in making prearrangements, and offer an interest-free monthly payment plan to suit your needs. Prearranging allows the costs to be frozen at today’s prices. At time of death, payment in full is necessary.

For more information on preplanning burial arrangement options please contact us at 410.557.9390 or visit our contact form.
