What to Consider When Selecting a Funeral Home

The staff at Farenga Funeral Home understands  that choosing a funeral home is a significant decision to make during an already difficult time. We’re here to help our neighbors in Queens and Astoria any way we can, including providing information to make this decision easier. After a loved one dies and your family needs the services of a funeral home, keep these factors in mind:

Farenga-PreplanDoes the staff have knowledge of my loved one’s specific culture and religion? Our area is diverse and you need a funeral home that is knowledgeable about your specific customs and traditions. With our decades of experience, we assure families that the services they select will reflect their faith and culture.

How much do different services cost? The cost of a funeral is dependent on what options you choose, and you need to make sure your funeral home offers a variety that suits your preferences. We offer a wide range of funeral, burial, and cremation options for all budgets. We’re here to help you tell the story of a life, and we proudly do that while keeping our costs  reasonable. You can also prepay for your own funeral to ensure today’s cost.

Is the facility easy to find?

The location of the funeral home should be convenient to you and your guests. If you’ve had the experience of getting lost or having trouble with parking when attending a funeral, you know how frustrating and nerve wracking this can be. Our facility is located in the heart of Astoria and we are the only funeral home in the area with a private parking lot. We are also proud to be handicap accessible for those in need. When researching or visiting various funeral homes, ask yourself these questions:

  • Is the interior and exterior clean and well-kept?
  • Is there enough space for all visitors?
  • How do you feel about the décor? Is it within your taste?

Being aware of your wants and needs will help you make the best choice for your family.
