Baucom’s will provide the Bi-State St Louis and Illinois area with a way for people to celebrate the life of the individual when it ends and for the living to gather social support to bring closure and move ahead with their lives. Its cornerstone will be the use of a reception area for social gatherings after the celebration that will foster human connection and uplifting remembrance. This is the way the aging segment of Baby Boomers is showing it prefers. DVD’s will be used for the repast as well as on our website to extend the celebration of the individual's life beyond the ceremony.
People choose a celebration of life planner on the basis of reputation, the key to success is quickly establishing a reputation for this new category as the uplifting place for Baby Boomers to celebrate life when they pass on.
The intimate repast facility and website will feature digital photos and films of the persons whose lives are being celebrated. This web presence will increase Baucom’s exposure by letting people participate in the celebration of life after the ceremony and repast are over.
Baucom’s is an intimate place to celebrate the life of the departed and to bolster support systems for those who must live without them. The Facility will provide services that are demanded by the Baby Boom generation who wants to celebrate the life of the individual together, rather than endure a morbid and stilted experience. In order to accomplish this, the facility will offer services that are for the living and for the community, not marginalized from it.
Baucom’s bring people together who haven't seen each other in years, even decades. In traditional services, people meet for a few hours and then they're gone. The use of the multipurpose facility will capture the opportunity to bring people together, to celebrate life and to re-form the lines of support for those who live.
