CANA Publishes Helpful Tools for Consumer Education

WHEELING, IL—Recent research conducted by CANA has clearly demonstrated that when it comes to death care and cremation terminology, consumers don’t necessarily speak the same language as industry professionals. It is essential to find ways to bridge this gap so as to better serve families in need of assistance.

CANA’s new brochures and postcards are designed to allow families to learn about the actual mechanics of the cremation process and address their concerns about the service and product options that are available to them. Consumers are also guided to approach the expertise of cremationists, cemeterians, and funeral directors as the ideal source to answer their questions and help them to fulfill their plans.
