Why Should I Plan Ahead?
The first thing you need to do is give your family permission to have a meaningful tribute. You can take your time creating arrangements that best suit your, and your family's, needs and preferences. All you have to do is fill out our pre-planning form or meet with a member of our staff to put your plan in place. You can create a plan at any stage in their life, and you can make changes at a later date if you wish.
It lets you decide how you’d like to be remembered.
Creating your own unique life celebration allows you to make sure that your wishes and desires meet the needs of your family. -Remember, funeral tributes are for those you leave behind. However you decide to be commemorated, pre-planning and preparation gives your family an outline to follow during a time when their life can feel "out of control". Pre-planning can help them to feel connected to you both in life and in death, knowing that your wishes are being follow.Your family will follow your wishes 100%; so make sure that your funeral wishes will meet their need when they need your support the most.
It takes the burden off of your family and friends.
When a loved one dies, family faces an overwhelming number of tasks and decisions while struggling through a range of difficult emotions. By taking care of your arrangements before the time of need, you’re relieving them of that burden and giving them more time and energy to focus on healing and remembrance. They won’t have to ask themselves, “Am I making the right choices?” and can instead focus on what matters most: saying goodbye and celebrating your life journey with those who cared about you most. A pre-planning outline will give them a point of reference; but it also give them the oppurtunity to contribute ...again, giving them a sense of control when life feels out of control.
It gives you the ability to pre-pay or pre-fund.
Many people make the mistake of not pre-funding. Pre-funding your funeral is certainly not required in order to pre-plan; pre-funding simply means that funds will be set aside and protected against inflation cost. With a rise in the general cost of living, an established budget, and greater dependance on Medicaid, prefunding today help to ease the burdan of future financial constraints.Your family won’t have to worry about payment, and can enjoy peace of mind knowing that everything has been taken care of. We’d be happy to provide you with more information and help you arrange for pre-funding of your services.
