A funeral can cost thousands of dollars and be a bleak affair. But there are people who are eschewing the funeral home and opting to send off their loved ones from the comfort of their homes. These in-home funerals are considered to be less expensive and more intimate. But home funerals aren’t for everyone. Your family needs to have a certain comfort level with death that doesn’t exist in every American family. Of course, Sacramento-based death care guide Heidi Boucher would like to change that. Not only does Boucher assist families with home funerals, she’s also in the middle of making a film based on in-home death care called In the Parlor: The Final Goodbye.
