While there’s hope on the horizon that the pandemic will someday be a thing of the past, while in the thick of things, it’s better to think about safety when you are planning cremation services in West Seattle, WA. You’ve already lost a loved one. The last thing you want to do is hear that anyone got sick because of the services you had for that person. There are lots of ways you can keep yourself and other safe while honoring someone who passed on. Here are a few tips.
To limit your own exposure and the amount of meetings you have to have, you could plan at least some of the service online. There’s always going to be paperwork to fill out and while you might have to meet with the funeral home at some point, those visits can be shorter if you are able to do a lion’s share of the work online, away from others.
2-Outdoor Service Options
While outdoor services aren’t always ideal in this area of the country, you could have something short or wait for the time of year that would be nice enough to be outside. Having the outdoor service may allow you to invite more people and allow them to be more spaced out and safe with the fresh air all around everyone.
If you want to have a memorial in a church or even in a family home, you should limit the numbers of people that are gathering in that location. You can always have another larger service later as cremation doesn’t prevent you from doing more services whenever you want to hold them.
If you have some older people in your family who you want to protect, or some with health concerns that absolutely cannot be exposed, consider livestreaming whatever cremation service you choose to have. You can set them up with a device so they can watch the services and participate as best they can from the safety of their own home. Everyone can see what is going on as it is happening and not be left out just because they want to stay where they are safest and most comfortable.
