The growth of do-it-yourself after-death care home funerals.

This might surprise you. Instead of having a traditional funeral home prepare, wash and embalm the body for viewing and burial, a rising number of families prefer to do it themselves at home.

Many reasons can explain this phenomenon such as the current economy, family traditions or even the shift in perception for death in our modern society.

To summarize, we can think that while home funerals might not make a big difference for the dead, it still makes a big difference for the living.
