It’s never an easy task to talk about death and most people don’t proactively start a conversation with their family on this matter. But the trend is now undergoing a slow change and we at Tindall Funeral Home get quite a few queries from clients that want to preplan their funeral. Almost every funeral home offers this service and can help both the ailing and the elderly and their family. There are a number of benefits to planning your funeral while you’re still alive:

1. Your wishes are kept in view

The memorial and funeral services will happen in accordance with your wishes. By pre-planning the funeral, you have peace of mind that your wishes will be kept in view.

2. Pre-planning gives your loved ones time to grieve

Family members don’t have the time to grieve when a loved one passes away. They have to keep their feelings of sadness aside and focus on arranging the memorial and funeral service. Pre-planning your funeral is one of the best ways of taking this burden off of your family’s shoulders. Since they won’t have to organize anything, it gives them the time they need to grieve and come to terms with the loss they have faced.

3. Financial relief

Funerals can be expensive and a financial burden on the family members. However, with a preplanned funeral, since you pay for everything in advance, your family doesn’t have to be encumbered with this expense. Preplanning can also help you save money as it protects your family from any rise in the cost of this service in the future as the price is locked in and doesn’t get affected by inflation.

As you can see, there are a number of benefits of planning your funeral when you are still alive. For more information, call Tindall Funeral Home at (315) 468-5521.
