Benefits of Preplanning

Allows the Family to Focus on Preserving Memories

Pre-Planning will eliminate unnecessary stress brought on by a loved one’s passing. This preparation allows the family to grieve at the time of their loss and celebrate important memories.

Facing Difficult Decisions Related to Death

Not everyone is comfortable planning the final details of their life. However, pre-planning not only gives you peace of mind about your final wishes but also alleviates many of the stresses and your family will go through as they grieve the loss of a loved one.

Let’s Your Wishes Be Known

The death of a loved one often brings unwanted conflicts. One family member may see arrangements carried out differently than another. These differences can ignite unexpected discord at a time when emotions are elevated.

Family conflicts often overshadow the preservation of memories and healing. Family members know your wishes related to funeral services and business arrangements before your passing. This additional time will allow your family to transition effectively through their loss.

Offers Peace of Mind

Our Serenicare staff guarantees your arrangements will be carried out as you’ve directed. Following the death of a loved one, there are more than 150 decisions that have to be made within the first day or two of passing. Once your plans have been arranged, you and your family can rest easy knowing at the time of death, final decisions have been made. This reduces stress and allows for timely grieving and healing.

Offers Flexible Funding Options

When you pre-plan your funeral arrangements, there are significantly more options to properly set aside funds. These options include, but are not limited to: a pre-need policy, life insurance, or scheduled payments for arrangements. At the time of death, services are traditionally paid for, so having options ahead of time will reduce the financial stress associated with loss.

Common Questions About Preplanning

I cannot say enough good things about SereniCare and Francis. They came highly recommended from many hospice nurses that I know and I am so glad I made the decision to go with them.

Francis made it clear that I was his priority and that he was happy to do whatever services and I wanted and did not ever try to push an additional service. He knows what he is doing and makes you feel comfortable.

In this hard time having the support of the funeral home and director was exactly what I needed and I plan on using them when the need ever arises again. Thank you!

Kent Smith, owner of Sernicare is an amazing person to work with during such a difficult time as preparing for and the death of a loved one. I lost my precious Mother Carma J. Jensen on 6/24/2018... Kent's calm, patient and kind presence was a blessing to me. He went out of his way to help me and offer assistance, I am extremely grateful for all that he did and for the professional manner in which everything was handled. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you!
