If a family member has died, the grief can make dealing with the practicalities difficult. That is why a good funeral home is important. Caring and professional undertakers can guide you during this sad time. Even if people expected the passing, it could leave relatives feeling numb and shocked or distressed.
Organizing mortuary services and making funeral plans might seem too much in the midst of grief, but one call to a funeral home here in Clearfield will put their mind at ease.
An experienced team will assist and make all the arrangements required for the deceased person, from the hospital to the final resting place.
Services Provided by Undertakers
Undertakers provide the following services for their clients:
Mortuary Services – Removal of the deceased person from the hospital morgue to the funeral home.
Embalming Services – Professional embalming can improve the appearance of the person who passed on, which is advantageous if the client would like an open casket funeral or wake. Embalming also kills bacteria and viruses, which prevents cross-infection to family members and friends who visit the chapel of rest.
A woodland burial may not be available for bodies that went through embalming. This is to protect the environment from the chemicals involved. If you choose cremation, this does not pose an environmental threat.
Cremation – You can organize a cremation with service (religious or secular), including a combustible container, casket, preparation of the ashes and obituaries.
Pre-paid funeral plans are available at all good funeral homes. If a loved one took out a pre-paid funeral plan, they would have chosen the type of funeral they wanted and paid for it in advance.
Relatives have an assurance their wishes for the service are carried out without having the headache of being thousands of dollars in debt.
Grieving can be painful, but a sensitive funeral planner can help arrange the final send-off with compassion and professionalism, taking some of the stress away so they can concentrate on saying goodbye.
