Helping people deal with grief and loss, includes those with disabilities

Jewish Disabilities Awareness Month is the perfect time for a community-owned Jewish Funeral Chapel to bring to light the fact that everyone should have access to information and programs to help them better cope with death and loss. ‘Plaza Jewish Community Chapel’, whose mission is to serve the entire Jewish Community, is dedicated to providing programs to help all people deal with grief and loss.
“Part of Plaza’s mission is to provide programming and support to those working in end of life care, and bringing these programs directly to the care givers is a service we greatly value”, says Stephanie Garry, Chief Administrative Officer and Community Relations Liaison. “…and some of these caregivers help support people with disabilities”
Plaza’s educational outreach programs include: a lunch and learn program called “Jewish Beliefs and Rituals for End of life”, geared for Social Workers, Hospice and Palliative Care workers. ‘Where is Grandpa?’ a program geared to parents of young children, and ‘Getting your House in Order’ – a program for seniors or adult children that discusses everything one needs to know about “being prepared”. Discussion is from estate and trust planning to funeral planning.
Plaza also regularly sponsors and co-sponsors End of Life conferences and events including two this past fall: “Support for harnessing Spirituality and Religion in End of Life Care” and Cemetery visits for senior members of The JCC in Manhattan.
