Advance Planning

Advance Funeral Planning

What do we plan for? Typically, it is the expected, larger-than-life events that require the most planning, such as our weddings, education and graduation, vacations, home purchase, family planning and preparation, and retirement. It is the unexpected or that which we have not planned for that causes us the greatest anxiety. As we prepare for our future or face the death of a loved one, unexpected questions sometimes add to our uncertainty and burden of grief. Do my loved ones know what I want? Will my funds allow for the service that I desire and that my family envisions? What happens if I move, and is it true that my life insurance might not be there (asset restriction and Medicaid qualification) when I need it the most?

Advance Funeral Planning is a lasting gift to your loved ones. It lets your wishes be known while giving you comfort that your requests will be met and your family will be cared for in their time of grief. This is accomplished through:

  • A free funeral consultation in the comfort of your home or our funeral home that addresses your personal wishes.
  • The completion of a Memorial Guide, which is a free service provided by our funeral home that documents information pertinent to your obituary, death certificate, and funeral requests.
  • Funding options that meet your financial goals while safeguarding your current assets from long-term care and illness expenses.
  • Freezing and locking your preferred funeral services at today’s funeral prices, which provides peace and eliminates emotional overspending.

By contacting our Advance Planning Team today, you can begin the process and experience the peace of knowing your funeral arrangements have been made, your price has been locked and guaranteed, your funds are safeguarded and protected, and your loved ones have been provided for.
