The proof is in the pudding: I am a skeptic by nature, but after previewing Grief Coach based on how they handle sudden, traumatic deaths like suicide, homicide, heart attacks, and aneurisms, I immediately sensed the invaluable service that could be offered to organ, eye, and tissue donor families. One of the things I love about Grief Coach is that it’s non-invasive. Donor Family Services Teams can be in regular touch with the families they support without it being awkward. Grief Coach can also customize some of the text messages to come specifically from a donation or recovery organization as well as send out important reminders for annual events like Donate Life Month. All of this saves valuable staff time and print/postage costs by leveraging text messages. As the former Manager of Donor Family Aftercare for OneLegacy in Southern California, scalable, affordable, compassionate follow-up became such a challenge for my team with such large numbers of donor families (4000+ per year). Grief Coach could resolve a portion of this large need for those families opting into text messaging follow up. I cannot wait to share this service with my national colleagues so that donor families can access this valuable service.
My clients talk to me all the time, about the lack of help and understanding they get from friends and family. If the people closest to them felt more comfortable and confident providing support, I think it would go a long way to helping my clients manage the depression and isolation that too often accompany grief.
After providing clients with a meaningful, beautiful memorial, I'm thrilled to now be able to provide Grief Coach subscriptions to grieving friends and family, that will last all year long. Our memorials set the groundwork, but grief is a long process, and one that is better when we're supported over time.
