We encourage families to participate as much or as little as they want depending on what they are comfortable with. Some families wish to be as hands on and involved as possible, which can include; helping with the removal from their family’s home, bathing or dressing their loved one, acting as pallbearers, officiating a ceremony, witnessing the cremation, or even filling in a grave at a cemetery. At Essentials, we encourage family participation and will walk alongside the family members and help guide them to create a meaningful experience.
