Pre Planning Funeral Arrangements
If you have ever had to walk into a funeral home, it probably wasn’t the most pleasant task assigned to you. That’s why prearrangements are offered before you leave your family to interpret what you really wanted. By making these decisions in advance, you can bring peace of mind to yourself and your loved ones. You’ll know that the arrangements you want are complete and the costs won’t burden your family.
Prearranging and pre-financing your funeral is a simple and secure way to provide for your final arrangements. It is a valuable and protected investment and is one of the kindest gifts you can give your family.
By making these decisions in advance, you can bring tranquility, definition and closure to yourself and your loved ones. You’ll know that the arrangements you want are complete and that the costs won’t burden your family. Everyone should be encouraged to give these decisions a great deal of initial thought and consideration.
You choose the extent, kind and cost of service right down to the smallest detail. You’re assured that your funeral and disposition will be consistent with your individual standards and lifestyle. You and your family can share in planning together. After all, it is the story of your life. You should be the one who gets to write the last chapter.
This is an economical decision because you are setting money aside, it will be there when you need it. You can also use prearrangements as an asset management tool for “spend downs” for Medicare purposes or other methods in preparation for alternative health care needs such as short or long term nursing care. Once you pay for the service, it will always be there for you.
Take the opportunity to sit down with your family and explain what you want in terms of a service for your last chapter. Put it in writing and feel secure that you have had a hand in your final arrangements.
