After the loss of a dear loved one, there are many decisions to make, people to contact, and arrangements to prepare. It is a sad, stressful, and chaotic time. At Norberg Memorial Home, owners Janice and J.D. Smallwood understand the need for assistance and guidance during times of loss, and through their website, offer a wide variety of helpful online resources - not just to their clients, but to the entire community.
"It's important to us to provide resources for anyone in our community needing assistance," explained Janice Smallwood. "Our website is easy to navigate, and offers a wealth of information. We provide details for locals who need to make arrangements for their loved one, and we also include information for anyone traveling to Princeton to celebrate the special life of the deceased."
Visitors to the site can find information about local florists, cemeteries, restaurants and catering services, and hotels. There is also contact information for the Princeton, IL Chamber of Commerce and the American Legion, a variety of local and national charities, the Social Security Administration, and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
"We also offer grief support services for the community," added Smallwood. "Interactive Aftercare offers online videos for grief education, and we provide links to Sesame Street's When Families Grieve, a special program that helps children and their families deal with loss. 365 Days of Grief Support offers daily online affirmations of healing and hope, providing comfort to people on their grief journey by giving them something to look forward to each day."
The website also includes links to additional grief counseling resources, including the Center for Loss and Transition; Griefplan.com, which offers videos, newsletters, and an online therapeutic grief program by Dr. Jason Troyer; and the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, which helps improve and expands access to end-of-life hospice care.
