The country is going through a strange time in history and while some businesses are able to simply shut down, funeral homes in Baltimore, MD never did. This is an essential business because you just can’t wait when someone in your family passes on and you need those final services. However, it is important to the funeral home professionals, as it is to you, to keep everyone in your family safe throughout the final service process. Here are a few ways in which funeral homes are keeping things in line.
Adhering To CDC Policies
There are been certain recommendations that have come out and some have relaxed since the beginning, but the whole way through, funeral homes are adhering to those policies. When it was best for there to only be a few people gathered, funerals were limited to a handful of the closest relatives. At times, those services were also only held outside to keep everyone as protected as possible.
IF you are in charge of a final service, it can be very hard to let family know that the services are occurring, but that they cannot attend due to numbers in the gathering and other restrictions. The livestream services funeral homes offer are very helpful in those instances. Older family members who are better off at home and those who are not able to come because of the number issue can watch the services as they take place, live. IT may not be the same as being there in person, but at least it’s something.
Online Planning Options
If you want to limit your exposure to those in the funeral home as much as you can, or even completely, you can plan much of the final services for your loved one online and over the phone. You are able to get the basic paperwork and fill it all out at home so you are more prepared for the next steps. The professionals understand that you may not be able to, or want to see too many people in person right now so planning in this manner is perfectly acceptable.
Planning Future Services
If you decide to go with cremation for your loved one, you can put that into place right away, and then you can start to plan out the services you are going to have for them in the future when you are able to do whatever you want and have the memorial you really want for them. Planning things now and then putting them on hold until the time is right can help you move forward.
