We live our lives always wanting to be our best and do our best. After our death, people we love remember us for the good we gave to this world and to others. There are many ways to remember our loved ones, but one way that is rarely thought of for the person in your life is by sending their cremated body into space. Yes, space, the “star, sun, and moon” space. It is possible to send your loved one into space. Continue reading

If you have lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, it may be hard to feel optimistic about the future right now. You have probably found that there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never before faced.
Grief Recovery is a faith-based grief support group that can help you face the challenges of loss and move toward rebuilding your life. We will follow the grief recovery book Beyond the Broken Heart: A Journey through Grief by Julie Yarbrough.
To help defray the costs of materials, a donation of $10 is suggested.

The BEINHAUER CAREGIVER EXCELLENCE AWARD for February was presented on March 30 to Nelwyn Corley, CNA at Seven OaksHospice.
Nelwyn was nominated as a truly excellent caregiver because she has impressed her colleagues as someone who appears as if she thinks of others even in her sleep. She doesn’t mind when she works overtime, or when she is asked out-of-the-ordinary requests, such as convincing a paranoid patient over the phone that it is ok to take her medication…. Nelwyn treats patients like family – she’ll make you laugh, or she’ll cry with you.
It was a joy to see Nelwyn’s tears of joy and surprise when the February award for Excellence was handed to her by Katie Brandt, Beinhauer’s Community Outreach Director; and when her nomination was read out loud by Seven Oaks’ Director, Lannette McWilliams.
The Beinhauer Caregiver Excellence Award, newly awarded each month, consists of a $50 gift card and a certificate, along with an entry into the drawing for the Caregiver Excellence Award of the Year.
–All area hospices, as well as the families they serve, are encouraged to nominate an excellent caregiver for next month’s award!
It’s quick and easy to fill out a nomination form, and it’s free!
A celebrated part of New Orleans culture is the jazz funeral. If you’ve never experienced one, you’re not alone—for the most part, it’s a Louisiana ritual. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t plan a larger-than-life jazz funeral event in any part of the country. These kinds of services are especially popular for musicians.
