What do you envision for your end-of-life arrangements? Is your family aware of your wishes? The value of planning your end-of-life services while you are still healthy and happy is that you are empowered to make those crucial decisions, so your desires are known, and financial pressure is taken off of your family’s shoulders.
No one really wants to think about their final services, but they are an inevitable part of life. Give your family one final gift when you are gone, the gift of remembering the good times, remembering the life you lived instead of leaving them with tough, emotional decisions they may question for years – and bills they may struggle to pay. Taking the time to solidify those end-of-life preferences is a wise decision that allows you to retain control during your life.

Pre-Planning Keeps Your Wishes at the Forefront
If there are certain things that are extremely important to you, then identifying and solidifying your wishes ahead of time is a must. It allows you to document what you want, keeping the focus on your wishes for your service. Planning for yourself or a loved one doesn’t require an in-person meeting. You can make a plan easily from your home. You can carefully outline as much or as little as you want, but the more you plan, the less your family will have to do or make decisions about when you are gone. If you have any ideas about your final services, or if there are certain things that are extremely important to you, then exercising your right to ensure your desires are carried out is a must.
Your Family is Saved from Having to Make Emotionally-Charged Decisions
Any end-of-life experience is extremely emotional for friends and family. All too often, the decisions that are made during these times are not the best. There is always the chance that what they choose is not something you would choose, but since you did not make your wishes known they had no way of knowing. When you plan your services, you can save your family from trying to make critical decisions while they are in emotional distress from losing you. Do the work for them to ensure that they will have one less thing to worry about when you are gone.
Plan Ahead for Peace of Mind
You can’t put a dollar amount on peace of mind, but that is what you ultimately purchase when you take control and plan this aspect of your life, simply because you make it so much easier on your family. You know they will be taken care of and your final wishes will be carried out. You can make a difficult time so much easier for those you love, and they can rest easy knowing that they have adhered to your final wishes, not left wondering if they inadvertently left something out.
Ease the Financial Burden by Pre-Paying
Pre-paying for your arrangements helps to ease the financial burden that would typically fall upon your family’s shoulders. They won’t be left worrying about paying for your services because it will already be done. No more stress and worry over how it will be handled; it’s one more thing off your plate so you can simply enjoy the life you are living now.
