Benefits of Virtual Viewing Funeral Services

One of the many changes that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused is a need for practical alternatives for funeral services. Due to federal and state regulations, funeral services are more limited than ever. Only a certain number of participants are permitted and a distance of six feet is to be maintained whenever possible. With all these changes, many funeral homes like Bohlender Funeral Chapel in Fort Collins have started to offer virtual viewing options. In today’s post, we discuss some of the benefits friends and families experience from our virtual viewing funeral services at Bohlender. Keep reading to learn more and don’t hesitate to contact us with any and all questions — we’re happy to help. 

Safe Distancing

Many people are struggling with the competing concepts of wanting to attend the funeral services to grieve while also being considered an at-risk population for COVID-19. Virtual viewings offer a safe way where friends and families can grieve and celebrate the life of their loved one without exposing themselves to the Coronavirus. While it may not be exactly the same as in-person attendance, you can still participate in this important event while looking out for your own safety and the safety of others around you.

All Can Attend

Even when funeral services are not restricted by the number of attendees, it’s not always possible for everyone who wants to attend to be there. Even fewer people are able to attend funeral services than ever due to the pandemic. With virtual viewings, anyone who wants to grieve and show their condolences has the opportunity. Bohlender Funeral Chapel in Fort Collins doesn’t want anyone to have to feel left out or miss the opportunity to celebrate the life of someone they loved. 

No Travel

Many seniors find it difficult to travel regardless of the global circumstances. Throw in a pandemic and the degree of difficulty soars to all-new heights. Virtual viewing funeral services provide people with the option to still attend the services without having to make travel arrangements and potentially expose themselves to the Coronavirus. This option works well for seniors, far-away family and friends, high-risk populations, and many more. 

Same-Day Uploads

One concern that some people express in regards to the virtual viewing funeral services is that they will be missing out. While the virtual viewing may not be real-time, it is often uploaded in a manner of hours. You will still have the opportunity to grieve your loved one the same day as the in-person funeral services.
