The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many of us to think about life as we know it very differently. We’re spending a lot of time at home, in pajamas, juggling work and/or home-schooling, attempting to keep a sourdough starter alive or planning about the perfect cross-country RV trip, all while trying to stay safe and healthy.
The pandemic has also forced many of us to think about our own mortality and end-of-life decisions. A recent New York Times article, “Boom Time for Death Planning”, spotlights how the pandemic has drawn new business to start-ups that provide end-of-life services. While it’s exciting to be launching a new business during this societal trend, I want to reiterate my personal reasons for joining this industry, which is to provide families with personalized solutions for life transitions so that they have the room to breathe and space to grieve.
While COVID-19 has prompted Americans to think more seriously about what they should be doing in case they were to get seriously ill or die, many have issues turning that thought into action. Did you know that an incredible 95% of adults want help putting their final plans and paperwork in order, but many aren’t sure how to start or who to ask? Well look no further if you’re looking to turn this “to do” into a “done.
