Caring For Life offers plant discount for people after bereavement

We are delighted to have partnered with Leeds charity and garden centre Caring for Life to offer people who have been bereaved a discount on plants and flowers for their home or garden.

All of us at Full Circle Funerals are passionate advocates of the positive impact of nature on wellbeing. Our physical surroundings have an effect on how we feel and something as simple as a houseplant or vase of flowers can help us feel more connected to the natural world, which instinctively lifts our mood. You can read more about the Design for Wellbeing philosophy and how to bring nature into your home over on our blog.

Plants add colour, texture and calm to indoor spaces and they also help to filter the air. Houseplants in particular have seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years and have become integral to interior design schemes, adding style as well as making us feel fantastic.

Caring for Life has been incredibly enthusiastic about our idea of a voucher, which we will now be offering to the bereaved people we support.

The charity is there for people who face hard times and offers support and a home for as long as is needed to help them towards a safe and more settled way of life. Their holistic approach aligns perfectly with our own modern approach to funeral care and bereavement support.

We would like to say a huge thank you to the garden centre team for embracing our idea and for becoming our first garden centre partner.

We hope to eventually have partner garden centres close to each of our services.  Watch this space!

Spreading the word about design for wellbeing

How we think and feel is, to an extent, a reflection of our physical environment. Arranging a funeral can be an incredibly difficult experience which is why Sarah put so much thought into designing the interiors of our services. Recently Sarah spoke to the Yorkshire Post about her interior work and about biophilia, the philosophy behind the creativity.

Sarah’s also written a short blog post about some of the principles she keeps in mind when considering how to create a calming atmosphere in our funeral services.

We’ll certainly be sharing more of our experience of designing with wellbeing in mind, but until then do let us know if you have any questions about our approach. 

Blog post: What do you write in a Christmas card when someone has died?

Following a bereavement it can be very hard to know what to write in a Christmas card, so Sarah, one of our Funeral Directors wanted to share what she has learned about what can be helpful.

Guide for delivering best possible pandemic funeral care

We spoke to more than 60 funeral and bereavement care professionals to ask how they had adapted to deliver the best possible care during the current pandemic.  They described how they were working to compensate for the fact that people are more isolated and are having to make some compromises due to current restrictions.

We collated all the learning and created an Delivering pandemic bereavement care shared learning to share this best practice and the project has been shared in numerous news articles.  Please get in touch if you have any questions of comments and we hope you find the guide helpful.

Making memory jars

Ruth, one of our Guiseley Funeral Directors has created a video to share ideas to support children in the development of continuing bonds after someone has died.

This video shows you how to make a pebble memory jar and you will also find some written instructions on the Continuing Bonds page on our website.

Pebble decorating has become really popular over the last few years and during lock down so this is something that many children will already feel very familiar with.

You can access this video via our YouTube channel.
