SUPPORT GROUPS

Linnemann Funeral Homes Aftercare Department is dedicated to continuing our commitment of caring and offering support for our families after the funeral service. We provide grief support information for the family members and provide programs for adults and children. We also have a lending library of books available for you to borrow and read at your convenience.

We offer different programs throughout the year. For instance there is a young widow/widowers grief series that meets in the spring and fall for 6 weeks. We also offer several luncheons for support to men and women in the hope that they can find comfort in meeting others who are experiencing the same kind of grief.

We began the STARS program for children and their families in 1996. St. Elizabeth Hospice is now facilitating this program. This program meets twice a month fromSeptember through May. Please register by calling 859-292-0244
