Advance Planning Explanation
Would it be better to plan ahead, calmly and sensibly, when you are in a normal mental and physical state, when you have full ability to reason, and when you are able to discuss arrangements with your family?
Making funeral arrangements at a time of loss is extremely difficult, both emotionally and financially, for those left behind. One of the most thoughtful things you can do for your family is to leave detailed funeral information and express your wishes. Advanced planning will leave your loved ones with guidance and support at a time when they need it most.
An important part of a pre-arranged funeral plan is discussing and recording some of your “life’s moments.” Whether it is memories of home, time spent with family and friends, or those special moments where we find ourselves considering just how blessed we are – these memories will assist you in helping your family create a personal and meaningful service. They will also be something for those we leave behind to dwell on for comfort or a chuckle.
Some considerations our family service counselors will go over during an advanced planning consultation include:
- All Costs for Cremation and Burial
- Urn and Casket Options and Prices
- Cemetery Plots, Mausoleum and Niche Options
- Recording Information and Documents for Vital Records
- Other Documents for Benefits or Power of Attorney
- Insurance and Payment Options
