Planning Ahead

What is a Pre-Plan?

A pre-plan is a place to house your wishes and documents relating to end of life; a collection of what you'd like to happen in your absence.

At Lantern, we’ve created an online hub that guides you through what you need to consider so you can leave a clear roadmap for your loved ones when they need it most.

Why Make a Pre-Plan?

Provide Clarity For Your Family

Leaving loved ones with answers, rather than questions, is an act of love. The more information that is organized and prepared before passing, the easier it is for the people you leave behind to manage the grieving process.

Ensure Your Wishes Are Honored

End-of-life planning is the best way to ensure that your voice is heard. You're effectively creating a clear roadmap for others to follow.

Keep Your Legacy Alive

There's more to an end-of-life plan than legal documents and instructions. With simple prompts, you can reflect on your past and present so that your history and values live on for years to come.

Plan Your Own Remembrance

If you have favorite songs, foods, etc. you wish to be presented at your funeral, putting those wishes in writing is the best way to ensure those plans get respected. Ensure that how you’re memorialized represents who you are and what you love.
