1. Your First Phone Call

If an unexpected death has occurred at home or elsewhere, immediately call 911. The emergency response team will determine what the next steps will be. If an anticipated death occurs at a care facility or at home while under palliative care, the medical team will inform you of what the process is. Your next call should then be a Funeral Home of your choice. The Funeral Home will assist you with transportation and making final arrangements.

2. Deciding Between Traditional Full Size Burial or Cremation

The next decision to make while discussing funeral arrangements is whether your loved one wished to have a full size burial or wished to be cremated.
