My idea is to support widows to negotiate the mindfield that is changing their life back into their name - banks, pensions bills.
The trauma experienced by my mother, and the other women she has had to help when they become widows should never had happened. Bills and accounts that were joint or in their husbands name have taken years to rearrange. Over and over I have heard people having to make that tearful call to explain their partner has died. Three and four times to the same organisation, as constant mistakes are made. I want to offer a service to help people at a tragic time to save them months of more stress. I want a website that explains what to do, advice for organisations to make them better equipped to respect their clients needs, and brochures in hospitals so people find the service. I want to offer practical help.
