Connecting With Your Local Funeral Professional

Connecting With Your Local Funeral Professional

Collaborating with your local funeral professional and funeral home is beneficial for you, your profession, the families you serve and your community. When you work closely with your local funeral home, you’ll:

  • Gain the knowledge to educate families about the service options available in their community, including casket burial, cremation, celebrations of life, green funerals/natural burial, viewing options, internment options, cremation jewelry and more.
  • Expand your network of end-of-life professionals.
  • Grow your business.
  • Meet others who share your compassion and commitment to serving families.

A Little Background on Funeral Homes

There are roughly 20,000 funeral homes in the United States. Some are small, family-owned funeral homes that may only have one or two staff members who do everything, from meeting with families and making arrangements, to embalming and managing the funeral the day of. Those one or two staff members also likely handle all maintenance of the funeral home facility themselves. Other funeral homes are larger with more staff who each specialize in one or more aspects of funeral service – things like making arrangements, embalming, and managing the funeral the day of.

What all funeral directors have in common is that they are united in helping families remember their loved ones in meaningful ways and helping them move forward in their grief journey. Whether they help families plan a more traditional service in a funeral home or church, a graveside service with a natural burial, or a celebration of life at a local restaurant, the commitment to serving families is the same.
