During this time and as directives from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Center for Disease Control (CDC), and recommendations from the National and Massachusetts Funeral Directors Associations evolve; we are committed to promote a safe and healthy environment. Our funeral homes continue to remain open and ready to serve each family and visitor.
The CDC provides guidelines that we recommend families and visitors follow when on the premises of the funeral home. These recommendations promote your health and safety, as well as the community participating in all ceremonies, which include:
➢Wearing a mask at all times.
➢Washing your hands and using hand sanitizer. Please visit our restrooms for handwashing. Hand sanitizer is available within our buildings.
➢Limiting your time with people out of your immediate family. Therefore, please limit your time and limit congregating in groups within the funeral home.
➢Avoiding physical contact including shaking hands and embracing.
➢Keeping distance from others – Six feet for “social distancing.”
We are available to make arrangements in person; however, we also provide additional services to encourage social distancing. We are able to provide online, video conferencing, and phone conferences to make arrangements. In addition, we are able to provide electronic documentation to secure the required paperwork.
We have Livestreaming and recording of ceremonies available for your convenience should the family request that option. This is another form of social distancing, and allows others to be part of the ceremonies who may be at a distance and unable to travel.
We value your health and thank you for following these safety guidelines. We are all in this together, and appreciate your patience and support.
