A Death Has Occured

How To Respond To A Death When It Happens

If your loved one passes, the location of the death dictates the appropriate course of action. For deaths in a nursing facility or hospital, contact your chosen funeral director for guidance and support as soon as possible. Once you notify your hospice organization, it will send a nurse to confirm your loved one’s passing if their death happened while at home under hospice care. One of the organization’s nurses will then contact us directly. 

You’ll need to dial 911 immediately to have emergency services confirm the death if your loved one passed away at home without hospice care.  Law enforcement will also complete the necessary paperwork. As you wait for the police, let your funeral director know to ensure they can make the necessary arrangements once the deceased is released.
