When you’re faced with having to plan a funeral for a loved one that has passed on, there can be a million tiny details that you’re worried about during a very difficult time. What if you could make your arrangements easier for your loved ones? We know that you want to spare your loved ones the difficulties of making arrangements while they are dealing with grief and loss.
Pre-planning final arrangements, whether for yourself or a loved one, means that those little details and worries won’t be nearly as difficult when grief and loss are part of the picture. It’s also a great way to help ensure that your wishes are carried out and can even save money compared to other arrangement costs.
Whether your wish is for a simple cremation or a more elaborate service in line with your family’s traditions, creating a pre-planned arrangement takes the stress of decision-making away from those who are grieving. If you’ve had the forethought to pre-plan your arrangements, they can often be transferred to different funeral homes, providing you with portability if your future location isn’t certain. Pre-planning can often be financed to help spread out payment of final arrangements.
Many people think recording their final arrangements in a will ensures their wishes will be carried out, but the will is often not read until after the funeral is over. The best way to ensure that your wishes are carried out is by pre-planning your arrangements with a specific funeral home and letting your family know which funeral home has the arrangements recorded.
To start the process, you have several options. We have a comprehensive pre-planning guide available for download that you can then print and fill in. You can also begin making your arrangements online. Of course, you are always welcome to contact us to schedule a personal consultation with one of our professionals.
Whether you’re considering pre-planning end-of-life services out of compassion for your loved ones or because you’ve recently had to make those decisions for another while dealing with grief and loss, pre-planning these arrangements are an excellent way to show your loved ones how much you care about their well being.
