Family Services

The death of a loved one is a traumatic and painful experience. Life Alaska’s Family Services Program offers you compassionate support and care as you begin your journey through grief. Our program provides bereavement support for one year to all families who wish to participate:

  • Bereavement literature selected specifically for your family.
  • Keepsake portfolio
  • Personal contact through telephone calls and letters
  • A list of community support groups and bereavement professionals, if desired
  • Gift of Life Donor Medal and the Surgeon Generals Certificate of Appreciation
  • Invitation to participate in creating a Donor Memorial Quilt square
  • Invitation to the annual Donation Celebration
  • Holiday mailing with tips on how to cope with loss during the holiday season

If you wish to find out about transplants made possible by your loved one’s donation, please contact Family Services at 907-562-LIFE (5433). Please keep in mind that transplant information may not become available until several months after donation.
