Everyone dies. We realize that this blatant statement is shocking, but it is true. There are countless organizations around the world that offer grief support, but none that provides the product that we offer. Helping Survivors Manage was created on the foundation of most new ventures: a void in the market. We hope to fill that need with our experienced team of subject matter experts (those who have been through it, as well as funeral directors, hospice, health and death care professionals) to help others through this difficult time.
Kat Reed has over 25 years experience in the financial/business world. Her background in bookkeeping and office management gives her the unique ability to address both the details and the big picture. She has been a hospice volunteer and has an affinity for the elderly. She became interested in the issues survivors face when both her parents died in a thirteen month span.
This book arose from Kat’s own work helping her predominantly deaf father manage her mother’s affairs when her mom died. Kat and her dad wondered how people manage all these tasks when they don’t have a family or support system.
