What’s coming up this week in Funeral Service. . .




Mental health, physical health, and business health are all important aspects of how we perform.  This week you can learn about all of those subjects and how to stay in peak performance throught webinars and support meetings put on by your colleagues in the greater death care network.  Here’s what’s up this week.



From the Cremation Association of North America (CANA) —  CANA’s monthly Peer Support meeting will be held on Tuesday.  This month’s meeting is facilitated by Ashley Johnson and here’s what CANA says of her topic:  Death Doulas — “What are they, what do they mean for your workload, and how can you partner to provide better service to your families? Ashley will share her insights, answer your questions, and help alleviate some of the concerns around the unknown.”


In her own words on a CANA press release Ashley Johnson states, “I was motivated to become an end-of-life doula when my childhood friend was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer at the age of 27. I was doing the task of an end-of-life doula for her without knowing it. Once she transitioned, I saw fit to provide others in need of education, service, and companionship and continue this journey. Everyone deserves ‘good death’ and families need proper closure.”
