A newly formed Home Funeral Association has been formed. Home funeral homes are growing in the United States. The Fact that there is now an association indicates a new level of acceptance for Home Funerals.
Recently the association has led Education Seminars for the NFDA-National Funeral Directors Association, The International Cemetery, Crematory, and Funeral Association (ICCFA)and the US Navy. The group is called the National Home Funeral Alliance.
Home funerals may occur within the family home or not. (Some nursing homes, for example, may allow the family to care for the deceased after death.) The emphasis is on minimal, non-invasive, and environmentally-friendly care of the body. Support and assistance to carry out after-death care may come from home funeral educators or guides, but their goal is to facilitate the maximal involvement of the family and its social network.
