Welcome to Benson Funeral!
We plan for many activities in our personal and family lives. We plan for births, baptisms, vacations, weddings, college and retirement. It is common to deny our mortality and resist planning our funeral. There are many options today in planning a funeral before we are faced with the loss.
Funeral services include many tasks which involve great detail when arranging a memorial service. The first of these services is the funeral director leasing on your before with all people who are to be involved in the funeral. For example, the religious figure, hospital morgue and the cemetery.
Pre-planning is the most considerate way you can ease the emotion and financial concern for your family members. Accept the responsibility and make arrangements for the inevitable. Our staff of funeral directors and Forethought specialize in pre-planning and will discuss service options with you in the privacy of your home or our funeral home. There is no charge for this service. Pre-Planning allows for meaningful choices to be explored instead of funeral decisions made out of necessity. Pre-Planning funds paid in advance are noncountable assets when applying for Medicaid coverage for nursing home care. Pre-Payment options are offered.
The funeral facility should offer a visiting room as part of their funeral services so that people can pay their respects to the deceased in privacy. This funeral home service usually takes place a couple of days before the funeral. However in some cases this is not always possible, for example if the deceased’s family are traveling from a fair way away, or if the deceased is elderly as they are not able to travel as much.
Many times you will find there will be set packages and prices for different funeral home services. Despite the different funeral packages offered to you it is not up to the funeral provider on which services you want and can afford. It is solely your decision. Just because the funeral director offers many different services does not mean you have to pick all of them. You should only pick the services which you require and are totally happy with to avoid spending more than your original budget for extra services that you do not feel are necessary in the remembrance of the deceased.
