A Pre-Arrangement appointment can either be held in the comfort of your own home or in our family lounge at Gentle Touch. Please feel free to contact us on 06 8767942 and one of our experienced funeral directors will make the no obligation appointment. All conversations and arrangements are confidential and if we come out to your home we can ensure you we will be arriving unnoticed to neighbors and surrounding communities.
We understand that losing a loved one can be a trying time. One of the benefits of Pre-Arranging is to make the process easier for the one's you have left behind and maybe hurting at this time. It's sort of like still looking after them even though you are not here.
We have an exclusive to Gentle Touch a "Go To Folder" where all your personal information and wishes are recorded. Even things like parent's names and where you were born are important information that we would need at this time and should be recorded in this folder. Then when it comes time to Pre-Arrange it will make this process alot easier.
A common comment from clients that have Pre-Arranged for themselves or for their loved one's is that it has taken a weight off their shoulders and surprisingly didn't take that long to do. So when the time comes everybody knows what to do to ensure your wishes are carried out.
There are many benefits to take advantage of one of our Pre-paid funeral plans.
* Ensure your final financial commitments are met.
* Prevent financial burdens to your loved ones.
* Guaranteeing your wishes are met.
* Exemption from Means-Testing: A pre-paid funeral plan assists elderly contributors who may be in a rest home or are contemplating moving into one. Government rules provide for an exemption of $10,000 from a person’s assets for prepaying a funeral and related expenses.
* Peace of mind for yourself and your family.
Pre-Paid funds can be paid in a lump sum or over instalments. These funds are kept in a trust account and are lodged in your name, only to be withdrawn once receiving a Death Certificate or a signed release form from the policy owner. To take full advantage of our Pre-paid funeral plans we would need to sit down and have a chat with you first, once this has been done it will give you peace of mind that your wishes are clear & in good hands, and that the financial situation has been taken care of.
