What does ultimate care look like?

Meeting your individual needs when it’s need most.

Funeral directors providing funeral services

When it comes to funerals, not all services are the same and neither are all teams of funeral services providers, but as most of us only consider funerals when one is actually needed, or when we are taking care of our plans in advance as part of preparation for retirement, it’s good to know what to look for.

You will want to choose a team that understands that there is a variety of different ways a funeral can be conducted.

If you follow the traditions of a particular faith or culture, then ensuring that the requirements of these traditions are followed will be important to you. If you are looking to make the funeral a tribute to what made your loved one unique, then consider a funeral team that are experts in tailoring a funeral to individual needs. Of course, there is also the opportunity to consider a combination of styles.

Because each funeral is important to the friends and family that attend, choose a funeral team that excels at attending to all of the small details, both in the lead up to and on the day of the service. High attention to detail in all aspects of the planning, and a high level of visible presence on the day of the funeral, will mean that you need only be there for your family and guests, rather than worrying about the elements of the service.

    I have attended two funerals provided by White lady funerals. I would never recommend them. I found them incompetent and rude.

    I was wondering if to arrange just a burial, without a funeral, was possible and how much would it cost, I´m very poor and old, don’t believe that anyone would be pleased to attend a funeral of mine…my entire dear ones are already up-there.

    I believe this company is American owned. I would prefer an Australian company.
    To Nena, yes you can have a burial without a service. Shop around for the cheapest quote.

    Thank you Miss Elizabeth, I will follow your advice...always is good to be informed by those who are not about money... And yes, I will shop around for Australian companies, if there is such a thing...today with this promoted free market overtaking on.

    I know some people must have a service cost around $6000 but if you want you can contact the crematorium like we did and when your love ones pass away you can get them to pick them up and they carry out what has to be done then you can collect the ashws . This cost around $1500.

    I´m aware some people opt for being cremated and I think it is a very practical option.
    But, I personally like the cold temperature so I don’t think I could take the heat of the crematorium LOL!

    Also I don’t believe we get the whole and real ashes from our dears...just some brushed out ashes from around there...who cares?

    One thing about White Lady they are very punctual ,my wife received a phone call from them enquiring how could they help her as I was dead in the Royal Adelaide Hospital .I saw the funny side but my wife certainly didn't, neither did the representative when I spoke to her to ensure I was still kicking.

    Yes, the new brainless generation...they just hit a key on their keyboard and many times the outcome is ridiculously serious. They do that in any job today. In some cases they may have a contract with some hospital and many times a brainless working there just press a key...any key looks the same!!!, such as the one that indicate...”he or she has just kicked the bucket...” come and collect the body.
    Most business are like starving wandering dogs...no moral left...
    5th Jun 2016

    You are right, Aussie. They may be making a lot of business nevertheless...still they are real "s..t" part of humanity.

    White lady funerals are sexist and racist. Would never use them.
    They are the pinnacle of double standards in our Sex Discrikination Laws.

    6th Jun 2016
    Apart from that White lady Funerals may be our fastest growing funerals network. But that is also because Aussie women are sexist in the extreme and will support everything that is female inclusive and male exclusive.
    6th Jun 2016

    Your comments ..."Aussie women are sexist in the extreme and will support everything that is female"
