Why Plan Ahead?

Why Should You Plan Ahead?

When you plan ahead, you not only get peace of mind knowing that your arrangements are already taken care of, but you also ease the burden your loved ones face making difficult decisions during your funeral. In addition, pre-planning allows you to have your final wishes known to your loved ones in advance.

At Lake Cumberland Funeral Home, there are three key reasons to why you should plan ahead that allows you prepare the funeral to your wishes, create peace of mind and reduce the cost of your funeral.

Personal Choice

Funeral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget. And we assure you and your family that the choices you make will be carried out as planned.


Peace of Mind

Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress.

Lower Costs

When you finalize your plan, we can advise you of the total cost. You do not have to set aside funds for your plan, but doing so protects you against escalating funeral costs. By locking in today’s funeral costs and ensuring that the necessary funds are set aside, you help relieve yourself of unnecessary future worry and your survivors of an unexpected expense.
