Megan Povlitzki - Sendoff


Certified End-of-Life Doula and Director of Operations of SendOff Funerals Reimagined joins host Ken Haglind on “Living Healthy and Aging Well” to discuss cultural shifts in death care, how the death positivity movement is gaining momentum in Minnesota, and how SendOff Funerals Reimagined is empowering families to think differently when planning their loved one’s funeral or memorial event. Though the term “celebration of life” has become more common over the last decade, funeral services and memorial gatherings look very much the same as they did 20-30 years ago. The funeral industry has remained resistant to the authenticity individuals and families are seeking, and most services still fit the mold that was established decades ago. At SendOff, we want to honor the lives of the people we’re celebrating in a more meaningful, more memorable way. We want to change the conversations guests are having during the car ride home. We want to remind people that they can experience awe, love, and joy even while grieving. Every life is unique, and we believe every SendOff celebration should be, too. Further, we recognize the importance of working with other end-of-life professionals and expanding our services to provide more holistic, end-to-end care for the dying and their families.
