1FUNERAL HOME OPERATIONSIntroductionThe funeral services aim to provide family centered funeral services in which they aim toundertake the appropriate ceremony as well as rituals. These kinds of services provide a creativeprocess for the bereaved by honoring the unique personality of the deceased person (Korai,Bernard and Nizar Souiden 175). The various factors that contribute to the change processeswithin the funeral services would be explored. The various required change processes in thefuneral services would be discussed. The future trends in the funeral industry would also beexplored.DiscussionThe funeral services aim to encourage as well as inspire the grief healing through theprocess of continuing care. Such services are aimed to assist the families of the deceased with thehelp of providing personal final tributes. The funeral operators should understand the existingproblems before actually deciding if a change process is needed (Wang, Chih-Hung and Meng-Shuang Lee). There arevarious factorsthat contribute to the change processes in the funeralservices. There are high costs involved with the funeral operation in which there is considerableincrease in the operational costs. There are often fraudulent prepaid funeral plans in which thebereaved parties are often extracted more amount of money (Kellerman, Bert et al. 298). One ofthe most important factors that lead to change in the funeral service center is the high level ofenvironmental pollution in the surrounding areas of the crematoriums or cemeteries.
