People plan for different milestones in their lives – weddings, careers and even retirement.
Planning for the final goodbye makes just as much sense.
However, it can be hard to know where to start, there are so many funeral products available today and each product has its own benefits.
Funeral directors are an excellent resource to find out exactly what services are available and what will best suit people’s needs.
Sue and Alyson from Tuckers Funeral and Bereavement Service are helping people to better understand funeral plans as well as the difference between funeral insurance and planning ahead.
“Talking about funerals helps to make informed choices. Every day we see how important these conversations are for families,” Alyson said.
Tuckers has been serving the community for more than 132 years.
“We understand every funeral plan is unique to each person’s personality and we offer a range of services tailored to suit individual needs,” Alyson said.
Free information is available covering a wide range of topics such as funeral services, burials, cremation, bereavement and planning ahead.
“People are often surprised at how easy it is to plan ahead,” Alyson said.
The most common questions people asked include: What information is legally required? What funeral choices can I make? What are the costs? What is the difference between prepaid and prearranged funerals? What about my jewellery? Will prepaying affect my pension?
Having these conversations across the region is also helping to alleviate some of the concerns and misunderstandings people have about the funeral industry.
