Resources

Legacy Navigator recognizes that not every family is in a position to hire us for help with senior moves, downsizing, estate settlement or emptying a house after a death. In our blog, we offer detailed information on estate sales, staging and selling houses and grief support. Visit our blog to learn more. 

Here we extend that support with outside resources. We have actively worked with these partners or used their services, and we trust them to offer the same quality of support that we provide. Click on the links below to learn more, and contact us if you have any questions.

Caregiving and Grief Support

VirginiaNavigator provides free, helpful information and guidance about health, aging, disability and post-military resources available to Virginians. The websites focus on issues such as: health and wellness, financial concerns, housing options, legal questions, transportation, caregiver support, advocacy, and so much more. Because it is online, VirginiaNavigator serves as comprehensive informational hub 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Comfort Zone Camp transforms the lives of children who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or legal guardian. The free camps include confidence building programs and age-based support groups that break the emotional isolation grief often brings. Comfort Zone Camps are offered to children 7-17, and are held year-round across the country.

Funeral Planning

Legacy.com is the largest online publisher of obituaries, and also offers grief support options. The site allows families to create a “guestbook” for visitors across the globe to leave memories and wishes after the death of a loved one. Legacy also covers celebrity deaths, historical events and grief-related news and opinion.

National Funeral Directors Association is the world’s leading funeral service association, representing more than 10,000 funeral homes in the United States. The website offers resources and guidance for grief support, planning a funeral, finding a funeral home and even a glossary of important terms.

Meal Planning

Meal Train isn’t just for grief support. This site coordinates those who want to offer homecooked meals for families after stressful transitions like a birth, surgery or illness. Families helping a loved one move to assisted living can also benefit from meal support. We advise sending meals six months to a year after an event, not just in the flurry immediately afterwards.

Take Them A Meal helps friends and family members support those grieving or stressed by life transitions. Donors can order a precooked meal for a full family to be delivered. The receiving families can schedule delivery in their own timeframe.
