Another service offered at Mattson’s is assistance in pre-planning the funeral, a way to reflect on one’s life before the time of need, which helps loved ones plan a celebration that is both meaningful and comforting to survivors. Although it is sometimes difficult for families to discuss the topic of funeral arrangements, our experience has been that after a pre-planning meeting, people feel a sense of peace, knowing they have taken care of so many important decisions.
In addition to funeral services, memorial services, and pre-planning services, Mattson’s provides several other services to the community. The welcoming sunroom at Mattson’s is home to a grief library, full of grief support book, available to the community to stop in and read a book, or to check one out for home use. Very accessible to the community as well, is the Mattson Website, www.mattsonfuneralhome.com. Their website is full of important information as well as area obituaries of families served at the funeral home.
Because consumer education is an important focus for the staff at Mattson’s, their licensed funeral directors are able to provide presentations on several topics relating to funeral service. The funeral home has been host to many tours from local schools, church groups, medical fields, clergy, etc. Inquire within the funeral home if you are interested in organizing a group tour or educational seminar at our Forest Lake, MN facility.
