Everyone grieves in their own unique way; there is no “right” or “wrong” way, and there is no timeline.
This is why Iowa Cremation offers a variety of grief resources for our members and their loved ones.
Everything we do is designed to help families, friends, and individuals grieve in a healthy and healing way.
As a benefit to our members, Iowa Cremation offers an exclusive access phone number for our GriefCare Line, a 24-hour service staffed by trained, compassionate counselors with a required college degree in Human Services. The GriefCare Line is overseen by Iowa's only certified crisis counseling center, Foundation 2. All calls are free and remain completely confidential. To access the GriefCare Line, please use our Contact Us Form and you will be provided with your private access number.
