Resources available to Families
Midtown Funeral Home and Cremation Options works with families during their most vulnerable times.
This is both a responsibility and an honor we take very seriously. In this section we detail the special resources we make available to families and identify the many community resources that are related to our work.
WHEN A DEATH OCCURS
The overwhelming feelings of despair, disbelief, shock, and numbness caused by the passing of a loved one cannot be conveyed by mere words. Even when the death is expected, the pain that loss brings can still be devastating. In truth, no one is completely prepared for the death of someone close to their heart.
When someone you know passes away, your first instinct is to offer encouragement, help, and support to those affected — but you may not be sure what to say or do. It’s okay to feel this way.
SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS
Some of the deceased’s family members may be able to receive Social Security benefits if the deceased person worked long enough under Social Security to qualify for benefits.
