Preplanning provides peace of mind for everyone involved. A carefully preplanned service can be the most comforting to your family, as it spares them from having to face decisions that can be both emotionally and financially difficult at the time of death. It can give them lasting peace of mind to know that they have acted in accordance with your wishes.
Making pre-arrangements can be as simple or as detailed as you wish. You can make the selection of the services, casket, music, etc. or simply record the information that will be needed for legal forms and other paperwork.
Another reason to preplan is to ensure that your family will receive all of the benefits for which they are entitled. It is important that all of your personal records, insurance policy numbers and location of important papers be accessible to your family in the event of a death. All of this and your personal wishes for your funeral can be recorded ahead of time. This ensures that the protection you worked and planned for, will be received by your beneficiaries when they need it most.
Although not required when making pre-arrangements, most people choose to set aside funds that will cover their future funeral and final expenses. We offer prepayment programs which allow you to control cost, avoid emotional overspending, and guarantee today's price. One of our directors can meet with you at your home or at our funeral home to explain the various options and answer any questions.
We also have the expertise to handle and comply with all state and federal health and welfare regulations in setting up pre-paid funeral plans for nursing home patients. We have our own Insurance Agency and a Funeral Trust established through a local bank. We realize how sensitive this area of our work is and do our best to merit your confidence and trust.
