Here at Unyts, we value the generosity of families who choose donation. We recognize that donor families have a variety of needs for bereavement support, contact with transplant recipients, information regarding the donation process, and for opportunities to share their experiences with others.
As part of our ongoing commitment to donor families, we offer diverse support services and programs. Donor families will receive follow-up letters from Unyts expressing our condolences. About a month after the death of a loved one, donor families receive a letter stating how their loved one’s organs and tissue were used. Our counseling staff will then make a follow-up phone call to donor families to provide support and grief counseling services if needed.
The Family Support Team truly understands what the potential donor's family is going through. Their own experience makes them uniquely qualified to comfort and console, to offer information, and to help the family in any way possible. The team's primary goal is to ensure that families are supported appropriately in their decision making process, no matter what they choose.
If you have any questions or comments about any of our services or programs, please contact our family services department via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 716-853-6667.
