Bereavement Navigators

Bereavement Navigators guides widow/widowers through the numerous, unexpected, and sometimes painful tasks that follow a death, by providing them with the organizational tools, resources, and mentoring they may need during the year after their loved one has died.

In addition, Bereavement Navigators helps people organize their affairs while they are healthy or before a death is expected, in order to make the tasks their spouse/partner, other relative, or friend may face after their death much easier, less time-consuming, and most importantly, less stressful.

The Power of the Georgia POLST and why everyone needs to implement this relatively new medical document


Brief program description:

The Georgia POLST (or Physician Order for Life Sustaining Treatment document) is a medical order indicating a patient’s wishes regarding treatments that are commonly used in a medical crisis. As a medical order, emergency personnel – such as paramedics, EMTs, and emergency physicians – must follow these orders. Without a POLST form, paramedics and EMTs are required to provide every possible medical treatment to sustain life.


The POLST is also helpful in guiding treatment after the initial emergency. The document provides a way to tell doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals what types of treatment you do and do not want. It is important that POLST orders show what treatments you want in your current state of health.

    VBA Donates to Food Drive

    The Vinings Business Association (VBA) is donating $500 to the annual Thanks for Giving food drive administered by the Center for Family Resources (CFR) in Marietta, in recognition and support of their community event of collecting and distributing boxes of food to Cobb families during the Thanksgiving season.


    According to volunteer coordinator Alicia Ferguson at the CFR, “We believe in collecting and providing all the ingredients necessary for a family to make their own Thanksgiving meal at home, in a way that supports and honors their own family traditions.  Thanks for Giving does so much more than provide a meal. It provides a continuation of a family's holiday expectations and way of life.”


    Charles Rea, 2016 president of the VBA said, “We realize that Thanksgiving week can be even more financially stressful when students are home from school for more than just the holiday meal. Through participation in the annual Thanks for Giving food drive, our generous community captures the true spirit of Thanksgiving.”
