COVID-19 Update November 2020

We recognize our responsibility to protect the health of those we are privileged to serve. Our staff will continue to guide families, as we always have, in ways they can meaningfully commemorate the life of their loved one, while adhering to the guidance issued by federal, provincial and local public health officials. We are committed to providing a safe environment in our funeral home during arrangements, visitations, and services.

We have implemented additional measures to ensure your safety, as well as the safety of our Team, which include:

*Introducing enhanced cleaning protocols in our facility, with particular focus on high traffic and high contact areas.

*All visitors will be required to wash/sanitize their hands, wear a mask and leave their contact information upon arrival or they will NOT be permitted to enter Adams Funeral Home.

*During visitations and services, we ask that upon arrival, you remain in your vehicle until an attendant instructs you to come into the building. There is absolutely NO gathering permitted on the funeral home property. Once inside, you may share your condolences and provide support to the family but limit your physical contact and practice social distancing. We strongly discourage hugging, kissing or handshakes to anyone outside your household.

*The current directive permits indoor ceremonies to a maximum of 30% capacity of the room. Under these guidelines, Adams Funeral Home can accommodate up to a maximum of 50 people. Ceremonies are invitation only at this time and can be recorded and live streamed so other guests can watch virtually.

* Adams Funeral Home will be suspending post funeral receptions with food and beverages until further notice.

*When making funeral arrangements in person, we are limiting it to a maximum of 3 people (the executor/person in charge and one or two family members or friends).

* If you are coughing, have a fever or respiratory illness and/or have travelled in the last 14 days we ask you to contact your health provider or the local health unit and do not enter our building.

*We thank you for your cooperation and understanding during these difficult times. We understand that family and friends need to come together in community for support during the loss of a loved one. Our promise remains the same, to serve our families with the utmost dignity and respect. If you have any questions about your options during this time, please do not hesitate to call.

We understand how difficult it is when someone we love passes away. Our compassionate and caring team work hard each and every day to make sure that the members of our community and beyond are taken care of during such a difficult time. If you have questions or need advice on what to do when a loved one is dying, making funeral arrangements, pre-arranging a funeral, or anything else, please feel free to contact us, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

The compassionate service that Adams Funeral Home provides begins the moment our services are requested. Our dedicated team comes together to serve each family in a caring, and dignified way as if they were their own. Every member of the team adhere to the highest standard of ethical practices. We value the relationships formed that come from helping people in such a profound period of loss. Maintaining that connection means that we are always offering our support and making a point to follow up with families to support them long after the service has taken place. We promise to work with you and your family in your time of need to create the perfect service for your loved one. We will be here for you today, as well as tomorrow.

We offer a wide range of merchandise, including personalized caskets and urns, finger-print jewelry, cremation jewelry, register books, memorial cards and DVD slideshows. We provide the service of accepting memorial donations on site, any time before or after funeral services, providing a card to the family acknowledging the donation and forwarding the donation to the respective charity.

Adams Funeral Home offers a Grief and Bereavement support program to the community, (not just the families we have served), at no cost to assist survivors with the loss of a loved one. This service includes the Grief Support tab here on our website as well as in person support groups which meet at the funeral home. If you are in need of this service or you know of someone who could benefit from this service please contact the funeral home for more information.
