Brunswick Memorial Home Receives National Recognition for Innovative Programming, Outstanding Community Outreach
The Brunswick Memorial Home has been honored by the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) with the Pursuit of Excellence Award.
Only 164 firms from around the world received this prestigious recognition, placing the family owned Brunswick Memorial Home among an elite group of funeral service providers.
Pursuit of Excellence Award recipients raise the bar on funeral service excellence by adhering to the highest ethical and professional standards and providing unsurpassed service to families and communities.
To earn an NFDA Pursuit of Excellence Award, a participating funeral home must meet or exceed business standards set forth by the program and demonstrate proficiency in key areas of funeral service, such as compliance with state and federal regulations; providing ongoing education and professional development for staff; offering outstanding programs and resources to bereaved families; maintaining an active level of involvement within the community; participating and actively serving in the funeral service profession; and promoting funeral home services through a variety of marketing, advertising and public relation programs.
Participants are required to adhere to a Pledge of Ethical Practices. "Brunswick Memorial's voluntary participation in the Pursuit of Excellence Award program reflects a clear determination to exceed the expectations of those they serve," said NFDA Chief Executive Officer Christine Pepper, CAE. "This prestigious recognition assures families of the high-quality, compassionate services they will receive the moment they walk through the funeral home's front door."
For more than three decades, the family owned funeral home has been providing exceptional service to Middlesex County residents, and prides itself on finding new and innovative ways to help families through a most difficult time.
According to Peter Kulbacki, the owner of the firm, "We have an exceptional Care Team that finds great satisfaction in thinking outside the box. Whether it's our Modern Motorcycle hearse, our comfort dog Bogan, or our video Memorial Tributes that we create for our clients, if we think it will ease the burden if grief on a family, we'll do it."
The funeral home was also honored by the International Order of the Golden Rule earlier this year for Exemplary Client Service, one of only three funeral homes in the United States to have received that honor this year.
Brian Kulbacki, business manager of the firm, proudly points out the company's commitment to community service.
"Our team comes from all over the state and was very active with several local communities after Hurricane Sandy. We also worked hand-in-hand with several churches and organizations that were assisting affected residents as well."
Brian also called attention to the funeral home's committment to Habitat for Humanity, having both cosponsored the Habitat "build" in Charlotte, NC at the National Funeral Directors conference as well sending a volunteer team to work on the project, the third year in a row the firm had done this at the annual convention.
Brunswick Memorial Home has been owned and operated by the Kulbacki family for more than 30 years, and was built on what had been the original family farm.It has been recognised with numerous awards over the years for exceptional service, and it has become the leading funeral service provider for families of all faiths.
