We are Here To Help You

Extraordinary Set of Services for All Needs

Grief is what we feel after a significant loss such as bereavement and our feelings of grief can take many forms. Everyone experiences grief differently and there is no ‘normal’ or ‘right’ way to grieve. Grief is completely natural after bereavement and people cope with help and support either from family or friends, or from an organization like SAIF Care.

SAIF Care provides a range of services to bereaved people and here at Mairi Russell, we are proud to offer this service exclusively to all of our customers. For more information please click the link to download the SAIF Care brochure.
