The need for independent funeral planners
In Canada Nova Scotia has the dubious honour of being the highest place in Canada to buy a traditional funeral and it is also the third highest place in Canada to purchase a cremation according to a 2012 Everest survey of funeral costs in Canada.
Why do Nova Scotians and people in general over spend on funerals:
Having an independent funeral planner at their side helps families make better decisions. Decisions not based on grief but based on informed choices and options to meet their needs.
Progressive funeral homes appreciate having an independent adviser with the family just as good realtors respect customers hiring an independent home inspector.
The best way to plan funerals is to plan in advance.
Life Journey Funeral Planning believes families should plan for a funeral the same way as any major life event:
A personal funeral plan should be part of everyone's end of life preparations along with their life insurance, care directive, power of attorney and their will. There are many inevitable things in life that we should and do plan for. Our funeral is just one more.
Life Journey Funeral Planning works to help families plan for this inevitable life event with celebrations to fulfill their needs and budget.
