Funeral Planning

The benefits of pre-arranging your funeral

The best time to plan a funeral is not when you are grieving the loss of a loved one, but when you are calm and can make the best decisions. That time is the present, when you can consider all the choices available to you, and make decisions without the added pressure of a serious loss. Fares J. Radel is here to assist you with funeral pre-planning services. Our Family Services Coordinator will assist you with kindness, compassion, and understanding, helping you and your family achieve peace of mind. By making pre-arrangements, you will be sure that your personal wishes will be honored at the time of your death.

Our Coordinators will help you complete a funeral pre-planning checklist, answer questions on benefits, help choose cemetery property and other memorialization, provide valuable guidelines on monuments or markers, and make complete funeral arrangements. We will explain the benefits of advanced payment, help you organize your affairs, and even prepare a permanent record that outlines your wishes in detail. Other advantages of funeral pre-planning include:

  • Giving you peace of mind knowing everything is financially taken care of in advance.
  • The security of your funds is guaranteed.
  • Understanding Medicaid guidelines – having spend down placed in an irrevocable trust.
  • Having your biographical information on file at the funeral home will help your survivors remember all of the important details of your life, when their minds are clouded with grief.
  • Pre-paying options are also available, so your family will not have the added burden of wondering how they are going to pay for your final funeral expenses.

Please call us today, while this important decision is on your mind. We would be happy to meet you and assist you with any questions that you may have regarding making your funeral pre-arrangements and taking the first steps toward protecting your family. We can meet with you at any Fares J. Radel facility or in the comfort of your own home. You can then rest assured that everything will be taken care of exactly as you wish.
