As we wind down the last few days of 2023, I’ve been spending some time pondering what 2024 has in store for us in the world of after loss services. It’s not just about predicting the future – it’s about shaping it with compassion and understanding. So grab your favorite cup of coffee or tea, and let’s get into it!
🔮 Our Top 3 Predictions for 2024
Let’s Talk More About After Loss Services
This may seem like a self-fulfilling prophecy, but It’s an emerging trend we can’t ignore: the growing recognition of after loss services as a vital industry. Life’s changing – we’re all living longer, having kids later, and often, we’re not just around the corner from our families anymore. This means there’s a bigger need for folks like us at AfterLight. The more we help families, the more we train new pros through our growing industry organization, Professionals of After Loss Services, the more everyone realizes we’re here and ready to lend a hand.
Digital Life After Life
In our digital era, the concept of our legacy extends beyond the physical world. Our digital footprints, encompassing sentimental, financial, and valuable exchangeable assets, demand thoughtful planning and organization. Photos, emails, social media – you name it. But what happens to all this when we’re not here anymore? This is something I encounter often as an after loss professional, especially when a client doesn’t know the unlock code to their loved one’s phone. It’s something we need to think about more and more. Whether it’s shutting down accounts or saving those precious online memories, we’re here to make sure your digital world is taken care of just the way you’d want.
Grief Support at Work
Recognizing the profound impact of grief on workplace productivity and mental health, we foresee a slow but steady shift towards enhanced grief support in professional settings. Although many are still missing the mark, employers are increasingly acknowledging the need for compassionate responses to employee bereavement. I hope more employers will get the picture that helping employees navigate grief and estate settlement is not just kind – it’s smart. We’re talking about things like grief support, time off when you need it, and if we have anything to do with it, after loss services offered and covered by employers. It’s all about making the workplace a little more understanding and a lot more supportive.
And there you have it – our take on what’s coming up in 2024. As we embrace these upcoming changes, we at AfterLight After Loss Professionals remain dedicated to adapting and expanding our services to meet your needs. We’re here to support you and your loved ones through every step of the journey after loss.
