It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.
Offer a gift of comfort and beauty to a family suffering from loss.
A gift to your family, sparing them hard decisions at an emotional time.
During a time of mourning seniors groups can be helpful. You can be surrounded by people who understand what you are going through. They can also help with suggesting places to go to socialize and talk about your fond memories. Playing cards, and reading are just some of the activities that are available through these groups. The Saamis Memorial Funeral Chapel, Crematorium & Reception Centre/CGR Holdings Ltd. has provided a list of seniors groups around the Medicine Hat and surrounding area.
We are fortunate to have an active number of groups focused on addressing the needs of seniors in the area. We respect that after loosing a parent or a spouse, a new level of care and concern arises for those left behind. Any of these groups can provide you advice on programs designed to help and provide the caring peace of mind that has made our area so special.
