The PALS Training Program

Why is there a need for trained after loss professionals?

The realities of today's circumstances around family dynamics, aging, geography and demands around work/life balance pose an interesting challenge:

  • The world's population is aging at a faster rate than ever before and people are living longer
  • We have more "stuff" (personal property and assets) than ever before
  • We live further from immediate and extended family, resulting in a void of support
  • We're having kids later in life, in effect creating an older sandwich generation who are busy juggling kids and careers and may be unable to help their aging parents/loved ones

PALS helps fill the gap created by the reality of estate attorneys, accountants and/or financial advisors not handling all of the to-dos that fall to the family after a loss.

There's a huge need right now for professionals who know how to guide people through the paperwork, tasks, and decisions they face after the loss of a loved one.
