For months we have been anticipating the day when we could offer cremation services to the families we serve. As of July 14, our Crematorium is now in operation. Families cremation needs will now be looked after directly by our staff. This will offer more options for families choosing cremation.
The death of someone special is one of the most difficult times in our lives. We feel truly blessed to be able to help people through this very difficult time in their lives.
It is our hope that everyone who comes through our doors will be helped with the care, compassion, dignity and respect that they deserve. Sometimes life’s difficult moments require a woman’s touch. We will give each family the personal care required to take care of all the details for their loved one’s services.
Our goal is to create a tranquil atmosphere that people will feel comfortable coming in to. We welcome everyone to come in, have a cup of coffee or tea with us, and see our funeral home before a crisis happens. Hopefully this will help to lessen the stress at the time of a death in your family.
We, at Malinoski & Danyluik Funeral Home & Crematorium, are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. We are following all health guidelines set forth by the CDC, Health Canada, Saskatchewan Health, Funeral and Cremation Services of Saskatchewan and the Funeral Services Association of Canada.
Our commitment to the families we serve remains the same. We will continue to serve and assist families with the same dignity and respect as always.
Following regulations and protocol set in place by the Province of Saskatchewan, guidelines for places of worship, under which funeral services fall, all facilities can have a maximum of 30 persons in attendance. Outdoor gatherings may include up to 30 people only as well. We will work with your family to find the appropriate place to have the funeral and to choose options that will best suit your needs at this time. While the social norm is to gather and support our family, friends and neighbours upon the death of a loved one, the pandemic situation has changed the ways that this can happen. For gatherings of any size, we ask that everyone follow the hygiene practices that have been set out by Saskatchewan Health and to stay home if not feeling well or have recently returned home from another country. With technology today, there are many options to include those who live away or are not able to be present. Friends and family can still be in touch with those that are grieving through phone calls or by leaving messages here on our website on the individual tribute walls.
For the next while, we will be keeping our office business hours Monday - Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., however we are available 24/7 for families who are in need of our services. For anyone who wishes to come in for information regarding services we can provide, to transfer preneed policies or set up new preneed arrangements, simply stop in during our regular hours or call us to set up an appointment time that works for you. Arrangement conferences may still be held by phone or via internet if that will make things easier for families. We will be available in person for those who wish to see us directly.
To keep the families we serve as well as our staff and community members safe we have introduced extra disinfection and cleaning throughout the funeral home. As per provincial guidelines, masks are now mandatory in all indoor public spaces therefore if you do not have a mask, we will have some available in the entrance.
We feel grateful for the trust that families place in us and will do our best to serve your needs during this difficult time both in your life and the world around us.
Our hope is that we will be able to alleviate any extra stress in an already stressful and emotional time.
