Why Should I Plan Ahead?


It’s easy
Planning ahead is simple and easy, and allows you to create the arrangements that are best suited to your preferences. The only thing required is to fill out a form or meet with one of our staff members in order to put your plan into place. Anyone can create a funeral plan, which can always be altered at a later stage. Guilford Funeral Home is pleased to provide pre-planning funeral services for individuals in Guilford, CT, Madison, CT, Clinton, CT, and the nearby areas.

It lets you decide how you’d like to be remembered.
Creating your own unique life celebration allows you to make sure that your wishes and desires are respected upon your passing. However you decide to be memorialized, pre-planning and preparation gives you control over the personal decisions that must be made when a person moves on from this life. Planning can be meaningful for your family, as well, if you choose to include them in the process. It can help them to feel connected to you both in life and in death, knowing that your arrangements reflect exactly what you envisioned them to be.

It takes the burden off of your family and friends.
When a loved one passes, the family faces an overwhelming number of tasks and decisions, all while struggling through grief and a range of difficult emotions. By taking care of your arrangements before the time of need, you’re relieving them of that burden and giving them more time and energy to focus on healing and remembrance. They won’t have to ask themselves, “Am I making the right choices?” and can instead focus on what matters: saying goodbye and celebrating your life journey with those who cared about you most.

It gives you the ability to pre-pay, if you wish.
While pre-funding your funeral is certainly not required in order to pre-plan, pre-payment means that your funds will be set aside and protected against inflation and unforeseen increases in cost. Your family won’t have to worry about payment, and can enjoy peace of mind knowing that everything has been taken care of. Guilford Funeral Home offers convenient online pre planning services, and we are happy to assist you with arranging pre-funding for your services.

 

What if I Move?

Once you create your pre-plan with us, we store it in our files as a record of your final wishes and decisions. Your plan is easily transferable to any funeral home in the United States, so it can be used wherever you might choose to relocate. No matter where you live at the time of your passing, or which funeral home’s services you decide to use, we’ll make sure that your plan follows you there.

 

Where Do I Start?

You can use our Pre-Planning Form to begin creating your personalized arrangements. You can also contact us to schedule a time to meet with a member of our staff to discuss your options and design your plan in person.
