Premier condolence website eCondolence.com announces new partnership with Pathways — a San Francisco Bay Area not-for-profit providing home health, hospice, private duty, and geriatric care management care — to provide information and resources to individuals and families, helping understand loss and express condolences.
eCondolence.com has announced a partnership with leading health services provider Pathways, expanding its network of hospice partners and bringing dedicated information, tools and resources to the more than 5,000 families that Pathways serves annually, and its caregivers.
eCondolence.com’s Learning Center provides a compilation of tools and articles, covering topics such as grief, coping, bereavement and loss, along with guidance on expressing appropriate condolences. “Our team is dedicated to providing an easy-to-use, reliable resource for mourners, comforters and those seeking to support others following a loss,” says Michael Schimmel, CEO and founder of eCondolence.com. “Through our partnership with Pathways, we help to provide patients’ families and caregivers with comprehensive resources.”
For Pathways, the partnership with eCondolence.com is a natural extension of the innovative, patient- and family-centered care they are known for delivering since their inception in 1977. “This unique partnership with eCondolence.com will give visitors to our website a useful array of resources such as planning checklists, condolence gifts, and what to expect at funerals of different faiths,” said Pathways Chief Strategy Officer Georgia Rock. “We’re known for the ongoing care we give families after a loss, and forging this partnership augments that support even more.”
eCondolence.com provides an easy-to-use, efficient resource to help family members, friends, colleagues and acquaintances cope with the loss of a loved one. The site offers information and guidance about appropriate items to send and words to express condolences in a respectful and understanding way.
