When a family member or any loved one passes away, handling everything from the funeral service to other tasks falls on you. While this is a time-consuming process, your responsibilities don't just end there. There are several more things that have to be attended to.

Things To Attend To After The Funeral

We at Blair Mazzarella Funeral Home are here to provide you with all the necessary information and assist you in every possible way. Our team of dedicated staff will organize every single aspect of the service for you. Here are a few things you can expect after the funeral:

  • Financial Obligations – Managing all financial aspects like informing credit card companies, insurance companies, and banks is crucial. You need to pay off all utility bills and dues. If your loved one rented an apartment, you need to get in touch with the landlord and go over the termination details for the lease.
     
  • Manage The Paperwork – After tackling all financial obligations, there's a ton of paperwork that has to be taken care of, including loan payments, closing accounts, and discussing mortgage payments. You should get in touch with an estate lawyer to help you out with this process. They will see to it that everything’s taken care of.
     
  • Pay Some Attention To Yourself – It can be heartbreaking to lose someone incredibly close to you, and adjusting to this will take some time. While you comfort other family members, you might neglect your own health. It's also necessary to do something for yourself. Try stepping out of that zone, and maybe go for a walk if you get the time.

Taking a breather from these responsibilities will help relieve some of the stress and help you heal. For any details about our customized funeral services or for professional assistance with preplanning your funeral, contact Blair Mazzarella Funeral Home.
