There are plenty of benefits associated with hosting a funeral at premises where the staff broadcast funeral services. Here are some of these benefits.
It can enable people who are clinically vulnerable to watch the funeral
One of the many difficult aspects of the pandemic is that it is has prevented those who are clinically vulnerable from going to the funerals of their loved ones in person, as their risk of contracting the virus is too high when they're in public with other people.
However, if a person who is organising a funeral hosts it in a funeral home that broadcasts its services, any clinically-vulnerable relatives of that person who would like to go to that funeral can do so virtually, by viewing the funeral via a live broadcast. This can bring immense peace to these individuals, who may find the prospect of not getting a chance to be at this meaningful event very upsetting, whilst still ensuring that they do not need to take on the risk of going to a public place and mingling with others who could accidentally pass the virus onto them.
It can make the funeral much easier to organise and host
Many people find organising funerals extremely hard, particularly if they were a close relation or friend of the deceased. The mental strain that these individuals can feel, as a result of making preparations and hosting a funeral when they are grieving, can be overwhelming. However, if these individuals utilise a funeral home's broadcasting service, it can relieve some of this psychological strain. The reason for this is as follows: one of the challenges of organising a funeral is that before and after it, the host is usually expected to greet each of the guests, accept their condolences and make conversation. If they are grieving and exhausted by all of the planning, this can be incredibly draining.
However, if they only ask a few of the guests to go to the funeral in person and let the other guests view the funeral service via the live broadcast, there will be far fewer people with whom they'll need to interact with on the day. This could be very helpful for a person who feels as if they cannot cope with much more strain and would ensure that they could host a funeral that is small enough for them to cope with, without causing offence to anyone by not inviting them.
