The COVID-19 pandemic is stressful for every funeral director. You’re concerned about yourselves, your coworkers, the families you serve, and your own families that you go home to at night; therefore, you need to take care of ourselves during these stressful times.
If you need to help working through the stress of this situation and need better ways to take care of yourself so you can be at your best at work and at home, the NFDA Work/Life Resource Program is here for you.
This program is an EAP or Employee Assistance Program; you may have heard that term before from a previous employer or perhaps as a benefit offered by your spouse’s employer.
The Work/Life Resource Program is available to NFDA members 24 hours a day, seven days a week and it is completely confidential and free of charge. Your issues, whether they be personal or professional are your business. Our third-party partner, Beacon Health Options, never tells us who calls. We simply want to provide support when you need it so you can be at your best at work and with your family.
Whether your concern is big or small, advice and help are available whenever you need it. Beacon offers many services and referrals, but what you might find most useful in helping you manage your stress during these trying times are the three in-person or virtual sessions with a licensed counselor.
Again, these calls are 100% confidential –Beacon’s strictly adheres to federal privacy laws.
You can find more information about the Work/Life Resource Program on the NFDA website or by calling NFDA at 800-228-6332.
