Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all industries are having to make significant changes to support the populations they serve, and the funeral industry is no different during this time of ever-changing circumstances.
Cypress Lawn Funeral Home & Memorial Park and its trusted providers across the Bay Area are prepared with the latest technology to serve families as they navigate the loss of a loved one during this especially difficult time.
Cypress Lawn offers livestreaming at all six of its chapels located across the Bay Area. This important technology allows anyone to share in the celebration of life from a remote location, including from abroad, so they can still be present to honor the life of their loved one from the comfort and safety of their own home. This is vital for community members because they can adhere to California’s current public safety guidelines regarding the size of gatherings but can still show their support to grieving families. Not only can the service be streamed in real-time, but the high-quality video is also recorded and stored so that it can be viewed at a later time. This video is also given to the family so they can keep it to honor their loved one’s memory.
Livestreaming and the recording of services are not available at all funeral homes, but these offerings are included at no additional cost at all Cypress Lawn providers.
“We know this is a difficult time for our country and world, and we are doing everything we can to alleviate as much stress as possible from families who are already coping with the loss of a loved one. That’s why we are offering this incredibly important service to families for no additional charge,” said Bob Gordon, President & CEO of Cypress Lawn. “For over a century, Cypress Lawn has been there for the Bay Area during difficult times, and our team stands ready to help now in any way we can.”
