Your Biggest Home Funeral Questions

You’re at the National Home Funeral Alliance conference on the first full day. It’s just after your amazing, organic lunch at the Pearlstone Center, a beautiful venue near to WA DC that is a lush and welcoming farm. You’ve spent the morning learning how you’re not alone. That there are super smart people at the gates, keeping our rights intact. They need you to join them, whether you’re new to this or stepping up your professional practice. You’re making new friends and hanging out with those you haven’t seen in maybe two years.

Now, it’s time to take it up a notch. To figure out three things each of us can do in our own communities to spread the word and advocate for our home funeral families. You get asked these questions…or have wondered yourself.

  • Is it possible to have a home funeral after an autopsy?
  • How do you care for your own dead after organ donation?
  • What if they want to donate their body to science?

We’ll have the experts there to help with those questions, plus you’ll learn how to complete family-directed home care —autopsy, body and organ donation, working with funeral directors, filing requirements and much more. Join the discussion with Ruth Ann Arty, MD Mortuary Board; Char Barrett, Funeral Director; Bruce Goldfarb, Maryland Office of the Medical Examiner; facilitated by Nina Thompson.

Please join us. Register today and go home better prepared to handle the tricky issues. September 22 – 24 near WA DC.
