“Compassion” means different things to different people.
At Regency Nursing Centers, there is no ambiguity.
We don’t vacillate.
Compassion in the Regency lexicon is purposeful, unswerving and resolute.
Our families and residents recognize our brand of compassion – and they wholeheartedly appreciate it!
Well, a funeral home in Saginaw, MI is making the news reels this week for doling out their own version of compassionate end of life care.
Bob Johnson reports for Mlife:
SAGINAW, MI — Businesses from banks to fast-food restaurants have long served patrons by offering drive-thru windows. Now a Saginaw funeral home is offering the convenience of drive-thru viewing.
Paradise Funeral Chapel, 3100 S. Washington, has installed a drive-thru window allowing people to drive up to pay their last respects.
Funeral home President Ivan E. Phillips said he’s had the idea for years, but an incident last year made him turn the idea into reality.
That’s when an elderly woman who was in a nursing home could not make it inside the chapel to visit her husband or attend his funeral, Phillips said.
“She would’ve got a chance to see him if we had this, so I knew we had to move forward,” Phillips said.
Phillips said the drive-thru allows others to pay respects to the dead who might otherwise not visit the funeral home.
“Considering the elderly generation that we service, so many people are afraid of funeral homes. So why not be able to do it from your car?” he asked.
There you have it friends; a “drive thru funeral parlor” sans the popcorn.
Now let me show you the pictures:
