WHEN A LOVED ONE PASSES AWAY

A DEATH AT HOME
If you are on your own call a member of the family, or a friend, to be with you during these first few hours.Call the Doctor, to confirm that the person has passed away but also for you. It is usual to feel anxious and emotionally exhausted. Talk to the doctor about this, they can help you through this most difficult of times.
When you feel ready to let your loved one go, call your Funeral Director.
Again, don't be alone at this time, call your Funeral Director, they will advise you about the next steps.
IN A NURSING HOME
Staff at the Nursing Home will call you when the person passes away, they will ask the name of your Funeral Director, then arrange for them to collect the deceased.
If the Doctor does not know the cause of death he will contact the Coroner, this is not unusual so don't let it add to your worries.
