Selecting a funeral home and pre-planning your funeral is beneficial for many reasons. It allows your intentions to be known in advance, which can help guide surviving family members during a time of emotional stress. Pre-planning a funeral also allows you to compare prices and services between funeral homes and helps prevent overspending on items you may not want included in your service.
Within the context of the PPMI study, selecting a funeral home helps the PPMI Pathology Core develop and coordinate the brain tissue donation. The PPMI Pathology Core team cannot provide recommendations about specific funeral homes. You can find information on arranging funeral services on the Federal Trade Commission’s website.
