  • Assessing if a home funeral is a good fit for a family
  • Considering what to do at the time of death 
  • Caring for the body - bathing, preparation & preservation for a home vigil
  • Reviewing the legal requirements for a family directed funeral
  • Engaging family and friends in the process
  • Considering green and eco-friendly burial options

Three breakout sessions:

1.  A foundational focus for those who are new to
     home funerals with detailed information for
     how to provide after-death care
2.  An advanced focus and discussion for
     practicing home funeral guides about
     problems experienced with home funerals and
     discussion of various solutions
3.  An industry specific focus for Funeral
     Directors who are becoming involved with the
     home funeral movement to explore how their
     roles and services will differ when serving
     home funeral families

This training will be customized based upon 
the audience interest and composition.
