Hi, I'm Carmela Calandra

Funeral Arranger

As a former counsellor, I find it rewarding to support people through their transition of grief and thrive on bringing calm to the chaos.

Being a counsellor, you journey with people through some vulnerable times. At Bare, I'm journeying with people on the phone to help them through that challenge.

Supporting, guiding and being able to help unburden a family during one of their toughest moments is so humbling and rewarding. Knowing I can provide a safe space as they navigate their grief journey is such a privilege.

What motivates me to be a Bare funeral arranger?

I want to be there to show that empathetic side and help people realise there's hope on the other side.

Carmela has arranged funerals for over 118 families.
