We can now use modern communication mediums in a variety of ways. While children are attending school online, parents can work from home too. This gives us time and allows us to communicate with loved ones no matter where they are. During the pandemic, demand for Thomas M. Gallagher Funeral Home's live streaming service increased, highlighting the many advantages it offers. At the same time, funeral arrangements are being made for a loved one. Continue reading to learn more about the benefits of live streaming ceremonies.

What Does Live Streaming Of A Funeral Mean?

The practice of broadcasting a funeral ceremony online in real-time so that mourners can watch it from any location with internet access is referred to as "live funeral streaming." As COVID spread, fewer people were able to attend funerals in person, increasing the demand for live broadcasting funerals. As a result, even friends and family in far-flung places can participate actively in remembering a deceased loved one.

How Does Live Streaming Work?

Funerals can be broadcast live to the world via social media platforms such as YouTube and Facebook. Unfortunately, these methods may not be safe or discreet. You could also use paid live streaming services that limit access to those invited to the funeral. So people who are unable to attend the funeral can still watch the service thanks to the availability of live streaming recordings.

The Sustainability Aspect Of Funeral Live Streaming

For environmentally-conscious funerals, live streaming is an excellent option. If you are planning a funeral, talk about it with your dear ones so they can make the best decision possible.

Live Streaming Is Accessible

Thanks to this technology, those who would otherwise have difficulty attending a funeral can participate in the ceremony virtually. This means that participants from all over the world won't have to go to great lengths to be there, which could significantly impact the ceremony expenses.

If a person has a physical impairment that makes attending a funeral service difficult live streaming allows them to participate in the ceremony without having to leave their home. If a person is unable to attend the funeral in person due to illness or grief, they can now watch it online. When a senior citizen cannot attend a funeral in person due to illness or disability, this live stream allows them to participate in the service comfortably.

For information about live streaming for funerals or our funeral services, feel free to call Thomas M. Gallagher Funeral Home, contact us, or call us at 318-640-1375 today.
