Is Live Streaming the Future of Funeral Services?
The global pandemic has forced many people to remain at home and avoid travel. While life has slowed down considerably, it hasn’t stopped. People still need to find a way to work, communicate with their family, and learn. Technology has proven to be an invaluable tool to facilitate all of these activities. Funerals are no exception and many funeral homes have started to offer live streaming services. At Arbutus Funeral Service, we consider live streaming and digital communication the new norm.
Benefits of Live Streaming a Funeral Service
Live streaming has several benefits that go beyond the pandemic. Most funeral homes will continue to offer this service even after the situation is resolved. Here’s a look at some reasons why:
- Attending From a Distance – Travel restrictions forced by the pandemic have caused many people to miss their loved one’s funeral. Live streaming is a great alternative because people can watch the service regardless of where they are. They can attend even if they’re out of the country.
- No Need For Delay – Families don’t have to wait for everyone to arrive for the funeral. They can just arrange a live stream so people living out of state can attend. You will only need to delay if a few loved ones find live streaming unsatisfactory and would rather be physically present at the service.
- Saves Money – A smaller service is affordable and easier to organize, which reduces the burden on the family. You don’t have to make arrangements for accommodation, transport, and other such concerns.
Live streaming ensures no one misses out on the funeral because they can’t make it to the service in time.
