Getting Real About Death in Venice Beach

Chances are good that you don’t like even thinking about death. Preparing for death though, and making arrangements in advance, either your own or a loved one’s, can be an almost Herculean task. There are a lot of choices to be made, but the thing is, making them sooner rather than later, while you have a clear head and manageable feelings, keeps your family from having to make difficult decisions when the time comes. To that end, here’s a look at a few things you can do before death so your wishes are known and your loved ones can concentrate on mourning you.

Life Insurance

Life insurance isn’t something we tend to think about all the time even though it can be quite important.  First of all, it can be used to cover your final expenses. It may also be used to pay off your debts. Some people use it to pay for their kids’ college. Depending on the type of life insurance you get, it can also build a bit of cash value that can be borrowed against. Finally, it can be just what your family needs to handle financial issues when you die. 

One vital piece of information you need to know is that you can be denied life insurance for certain health conditions. For this reason it’s important to talk to an insurance professional that can help you navigate the selection and application process.

Funeral Service

Planning a funeral in advance means that those who love you don’t need to guess at what you would have wanted. Believe it or not, there is quite a bit involved – whether you want a wooden casket or a metal one, recorded music or a live musician, to be cremated or buried, and much more. The caring providers at your local funeral home in Venice Beach will take all the time you need to go through the process of planning your funeral so that you get exactly what you want. Doing this ahead of time also helps to give you an understanding of the pricing, the ability to lock in today’s price, to go over any veterans and Medicare benefits, and to work with your funeral professional in an environment that’s relaxed.

Funeral Planning

There are just as many ways for your family to celebrate your life as there were ways for you to live it. The most memorable services are those that are planned with attention to detail and they tend to include quite a few personal touches in order to accurately reflect the deceased. When you’re planning your funeral, take a minute to consider the opportunities for personalization and self-expression. Think about what made you the happiest. What best reflects your traditions and tastes? Whatever you go with, your funeral can be as memorable and unique as you want it to be.

Cemetery

When you’re planning a memorial service or funeral, one of the things you need to think about is the cemetery arrangements. Whether you choose a plot to be buried in, or one of the many memorial gardens in the areas as your final resting place, it’s a critical step when it comes to creating your legacy and securing a place where your descendants can visit to remember and reflect.

Each and every life is unique. There isn’t another one like it. If you’re planning your funeral ahead of time in order to save your loved ones from having to do it when you’re gone, be sure to have your life insurance in place, plan the funeral service and the actual funeral, as well as what cemetery you’ll be in or the appropriate cremation arrangements. The staff at your Venice Beach funeral home can help you make sure your end-of-life celebration reflects you and your wishes.
