    The Importance of Pre-Planning by Arbor Memorial

    Anyone who has tried making the final arrangements for a loved one will know that it is a stressful process with many considerations and decisions to make, including an overwhelming level of administrative tasks. Far too often people have not been informed about their loved one’s final wishes which makes it even harder to make those decisions during a very difficult time.

    Have you talked to your loved ones about their final wishes, and do they know yours?

    With a little pre-planning, you can ease some of that burden and have some piece of mind knowing your wishes will be followed.

    Join us and Arbor Memorial for a conversation about the difficult topic of end-of-life planning.  Learn about what to consider, how to get organized and the steps required to plan.  Ask questions and learn from their many years of experience advising people during these difficult moments.
