Preplanning a funeral isn't a new idea, and most people have heard of it or they know someone who has. When it comes to considering, people are still hesitant to take the step.

Preplanning Myths You May Have Heard

We at George Darte Funeral Home believe that clients should be fully informed about a service before. This blog addresses five common misunderstandings concerning funeral preplanning.

1. It's difficult for your family to plan ahead

This is a frequent misunderstanding, yet it couldn't be further from reality. No one in your family wants to think about you dying. When you tell them the purpose of preplanning and share your desire with them, they will see that it isn't as grim as it appears.

2. It isn't easy to plan ahead of time

The fact is that it's easy to make funeral arrangements in advance. Make contact with the funeral home of your choice, talk to the funeral director about your needs and preferences, and then obtain their feedback. Learn about the services they provide and then choose what you want.

3. Planning ahead of time might be pricey

Arrangements for a deceased person's funeral can cost thousands of dollars, and for some families, this is not feasible. When you preplan, on the other hand, you pay for everything upfront, and it's specified in your contract. As a result, planning the memorial ceremony will be less stressful for you and your family, as well as less expensive.

4. Preplanning a funeral might get more expensive over time.

This isn't the case. Once you sign the contract, the cost is fixed and unaffected by anything, even inflation.

5. Planning limits your service options

The establishment will offer you the same services as the ones they offer families, organizing a memorial service for a loved one who has passed away.
