Selecting Mortuary & Funeral Services
There are many decisions to make when a loved one passes if they haven’t put a plan in place ahead of time. And at a time of loss, these decisions can seem impossible to make. Whether planning ahead or at a time of loss, it is critical to choose a mortuary or funeral home that provides the level of services and support needed.

The selection of the right mortuary or funeral home not only ensures that a loved one receives a proper burial or cremation, but gives the guidance and reassurance needed to make this difficult process as simple and stress-free as possible at a time of loss and when putting a plan in place ahead of time.
But how do you choose a mortuary or funeral home that will give you what you need? Here’s a list of the most commonly asked questions we receive.
Top Five Questions to Consider
One of the first decisions you will need to make after the death of a loved one or when planning for yourself ahead of time is cremation or burial. Answering this difficult question will help you determine who to talk to first. Not all providers offer cremation services or memorialization options so it’s important to determine what types of services are provided.
Think about how you or your loved one would want to be remembered. Decide not only on the funeral services wanted, but also the level of service that is needed. All mortuaries and funeral homes are not the same and may not offer the same level of services or care. We provide complete care with a wide range of cremation, burial and memorialization services and packages that can be personalized to your wishes. This full range of care will give you the peace of mind you need knowing your loved one will remain in our care throughout the process and will be cared for with the honor and respect they deserve.
The passing of a loved one should be a time of reverence spent with family and friends. The type of services and costs will vary according to your wishes and budget. Your funeral provider should be willing to work with you to ensure your needs are met within your budget. You should never have to endure a financial hardship to ensure your loved one is remembered with the honor and respect they deserve.
We work within every family’s budget to create a memorable funeral service without sacrificing the compassion or care needed during this time. We have never turned away a family because of their ability to pay and never will. In some respects, planning a funeral can be a lot like planning a wedding where the importance of the event can outweigh any financial concerns. And without a plan or budget in place, families may spend beyond their budget. By putting a plan in place ahead of time, you can lock in pricing on services, merchandise and memorialization. It also lets you record the wishes and desires of the loved one who has passed.
At this difficult time, it’s important to consider not only who will help you with the funeral details but also with the loss you are experiencing. When you choose a complete-care mortuary or funeral home, you’ll work with a funeral director who acts as both caregiver and administrator. This person will be your primary support person and someone you will rely on to get you through this difficult time. In their administrative duties, the funeral director will complete all necessary paperwork and implement the choices made by the family regarding the funeral and final disposition of the body. As caregivers, funeral directors are listeners, advisors and supporters. They have experience assisting the bereaved in coping with death. Funeral directors are trained to answer questions about grief, recognize when a person is having difficulty coping, and recommend sources of professional help. Funeral directors also link survivors with support groups at the funeral home or in the community. When planning ahead, you’ll work with a trusted advisor to capture your wishes and ensure all the details are in place at the time of your passing. This will alleviate some of the financial and emotional pressure often placed on families when a loved one passes.
As soon as you’re aware of an impending death or if a death has just occurred, finding the right provider should be at the top of your list. When chosen early enough, the mortuary or funeral home can help with every step in the process, which will take away some of the administrative and painful tasks that lay in front of you. Of course, it’s never too early to plan ahead and the best time to make these decisions is before you need to. Many people don’t realize that you can put a funeral plan in place for yourself or a loved one ahead of time, and by doing so you are making that phone call a simple one when the time comes.
