Meeting With the Funeral Home
Within the first 24 hours of a death occurring, you will need to arrange to meet with us to begin the final arrangements. This will be a difficult time for you and your loved ones. Our staff will be there to guide you in making decisions and help make this difficult time a little bit easier.
Who Will Make the Decisions?
Deciding on your loved one's final goodbye may be challenging but not impossible. We will help you by providing the answers to questions you may have. We will help you understand what is involved in planning a funeral and be there to support you in any way that you need. Something you will need to think about is who will be making the decisions? Will it be you? Will it be someone with you at the funeral home?
Who Else is Involved in the Arrangements?
Does the deceased have children, friends, family who would like to be a part of arranging the funeral? Do you know how the deceased felt about funerals or what his or her final wishes were? You and your loved ones know the deceased best and we will work with you to help in celebrating a life well lived.
Do you have the information gathered for the paperwork?
When a death occurs, it is a legal matter that requires paperwork. To better prepare yourself for the arrangements at the funeral home, it may be helpful to gather documents needed. Below are a list of documents needed when a death has occurred:
Social Insurance Number
Pre-Paid Funeral Trust or Insurance Documents
Other professionals, such as your lawyer, accountant or bank representative, may need other documents in order to help you settle the estate. It is important to speak with them as soon after the death as possible in order that they can assist you in a timely manner.
