The safety and well-being of our families, community, and employees is our top priority.
At Bradshaw-Carter Memorial and Funeral Services, we understand the challenges many families are facing during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We also understand the need for sensitivity and professional care during this national public health emergency.
Mourning a loss at any time is difficult, but stress is compounded during times of enormous uncertainty such as these. We want to assure you we remain focused on your safety and providing first class, responsible service as we get through this together.
Bradshaw-Carter stands ready to assist families in need, and in cooperation with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and from local, state, and federal health officials, we are taking precautions to care for our guests in ways that allow families to mourn and to heal in an environment that minimizes any risk of transmission of the coronavirus.
We strive to honor each family with the highest level of service and professionalism. It is also our responsibility to protect the health and well-being of our community. As such, some aspects of our services will require adjustment as a matter of protecting the public welfare, most notably by limiting gatherings to immediate family, and encouraging social distancing within our funeral home.We have implemented new safety protocols to minimize the risk of person-to-person transmission. We are taking extra steps to frequently clean and sanitize high-traffic areas of our facility, such as door knobs, seating areas, and restrooms. We have streamlined our register book policies to minimize touching, and we are asking that any guests or employees experiencing symptoms remain at home.
We understand that it is important for the community to support those who are in mourning. To do our part to facilitate healthy grieving, we are equipped to live-stream and record memorial or funeral services at our West Alabama facility, and we will provide this service at no cost to the family during this national public health emergency.
We are committed to operating in full compliance with all appropriate health guidelines and intend to work within these parameters to honor our families wishes to every extent possible. Most gatherings, church services, or services at public venues will need to be postponed until public officials deem such gatherings safe. Our professional staff is regularly reviewing the advice of the National Funeral Directors Association, the Texas Funeral Service Commission, Centers for Disease Control, and Houston Health Department to constantly review and improve our best practices.
If you have any questions or concerns, our staff is available at (713) 521-0066 day or night to offer guidance. We are all facing this new challenge together. Houston remains a resilient city and together we will all do our part to get through this public health crisis.
