Pre Plan Today


Published: October 17, 2022

When you work with funeral homes in Portland, TN that have a lot of experience, you can rest assured that they are doing their best to keep up with the modern times and give their clients everything they want and need for the family members who have passed on. Since technology is huge, it only makes sense that funeral homes are using technological advancements in their services as well. There are a variety of ways that funeral homes can use technology, and are today. Here are a few to keep in mind.

Online Obituaries

The first thing that funeral homes do is use their websites to distribute news of your loved one’s death, with your permission, of course. They can post the obituary you create for your loved one on their website and you can share that link anywhere you want. It allows you to have something honorable that you can distribute to let everyone know that your loved one is gone. You will easily be able to share that obituary to get the news out further than you would have otherwise.

Online Paperwork

There are pieces of paperwork that you are going to have to fill out when you are working on your loved one’s final memorial services. Before you visit with the funeral home in person, or even during the planning process, you can fill out a lot of the paperwork online. That can help you to streamline the process and get ahead of some of the things that have to be done.

Livestreaming Services

If you want as many people as possible to be able to see your loved one’s final services, if they want to, but if you also want to keep the services small and intimate, you might decide to livestream them. Funeral homes often have the ability to record services or even to livestream them so anyone can watch along with your family, whether they are far away or simply unable to make it to your location at the right time.

Funeral Planning Options Online

Some people have to plan final services for family members from afar, or perhaps they just want to work on some things at home so they don’t have to be at the funeral home for long periods of time trying to make decisions. Funeral homes make their service options and cost available to you at home online so you can look things over, get ideas, make plans, and even sleep on the options so you are better prepared to make decisions. The funeral director is available to you at any time and is more than happy to meet with you to talk things over and answer questions. But if you want to have time on your own at home, that’s okay too and the options are available to you.

When you are working with funeral homes in Portland, TN, ask about their technological options so you can get just what you want for your loved one’s final services and for your own grief. Were here to care.
