We teamed up with the Toronto Star to uncover pushy up selling and huge markups at Arbor Memorial, Canada’s largest funeral home chain.
And we take hidden cameras into six funeral homes to see what the sales pitch looks like when you’re dealing with the death of a loved one.
We have written about the emotional stress and anxiety of this time. Pre-planning and pre-preparation are very important. Arrangements should be done before while family members are not distraught, while they are able to think more objectively, less emotionally.
It is reality and we all will face it but planning and preparing in advance means that good decisions, unpressured ones can be made without the stress and anxiety of a very emotionally trying time.
This is exactly why a planning guide such as the Estate Organizer is so important. It helps you organize the many aspects of the funeral of a loved one before it happens. Organize things with their help, gathering important information, compiling lists and phone numbers. Do this now when you able to do so in a less anxious and less stressed time.
