Community-based After-death Care
The Lily House provides the option of community-based after-death care. This is a friends and family-centered response to death that reclaims our right to care for our dead, transforming a commercial transaction done by others to a sacred service performed by loved ones.
Friends and family-centered after-death care is optional, and may include:
DIY coffin building and decorating
washing and dressing the body
shrouding the body
personalized memorials and celebrations of life
empowers us as participants vs spectators
provides authentic and intimate connections
supports the grieving process
inspires feelings of gratitude & purpose
saves thousands of dollars in funeral expenses
Help us empower friends and family to provide after-death care for their loved ones.
