Visiting a Baue Location
While the COVID-19 virus has required all of us to be more mindful as we go through our regular activities, rest assured that our locations are clean and safe. Our protocols cover everything from handwashing hygiene, cleaning product specifications, ventilation, equipment, required face coverings and area cleaning procedures.
How Baue Helps You Support Friends and Family
Baue has always implemented the latest technologies for the convenience of families we serve. We have made livestreaming and recording of services available to all families at no charge. You may view services at Baue with a closed-circuit private link. You may also support families via guest books and obituaries on our website.
Funerals are important. Recognizing loss is a human instinct and it is important to recognize that we must facilitate beginning the healing process. Please make an extra effort to support those that have lost a loved one during this unusual time. Your support is more important than ever with the added stress of these extraordinary circumstances.
Making Funeral Arrangements
If a death has occurred, or will soon, we are very sorry for your loss. If you are unable to make it to one of our locations due to travel restrictions, health concerns or any other reason, our caring staff can help you accomplish everything virtually. Every situation can and will be accommodated to ensure the arrangements for the care of your loved one and ensure your wishes are followed.
Losing a friend or family member is never easy—and we are very aware that these unsettling times can amplify feelings of grief and anxiety. Please know that we are here for anything else you may need to honor life, support loved ones and begin the healing process.
The safety and well-being of you, your family, and your friends is of the utmost importance to us.
