Being unfamiliar with arranging a funeral for a loved one need not be stressful when Alternatives is involved.
During the difficult time of the unexpected passing of my mother, Nadine was a consummate professional. We really only interacted with her, so I will comment on the service she provided for us.
From the first contact until the last goodbye, she embodied the authentic balance of skilled and caring professional. Her clear, detailed, succinct explanations of Alternatives' services and the respectful, discreet check-ins, and reliable, supportive follow-up for all parts of the services we required was key to the smooth transition and positive experience. Her past work in palliative care nursing is such a strength -- she is genuinely present, gently guiding the interaction, and able to manage the emotional moments with grace. Her sincerity and caring manner, her kindness in thought and action, along with her experience with the many faces of grief make her uniquely suited to this type of service. It was a bonus that she is also versed in the Eco-conscious choices available. My family was able to prepare, provide and experience a dignified, highly personalized and meaningful handling of our loved one's wishes for her life celebration and the scattering of her ashes in a garden we loved. Thank you Nadine so very much. Words are not enough.
