A Death at Home

Death at home used to be a very common occurrence in this country and continues to take place either unexpectedly or as planned. When death takes family members by surprise, there is bound to be a great deal of emotional shock. At this point, a call to the funeral director can help diminish the distress of the moment and focus attention on the necessary tasks at hand. To begin with, the deceased's doctor must be notified in order to pronounce death, and the deceased's nearest relatives must also be contacted. The funeral director can arrange to transport the body and take the necessary steps to lay out the body. Letters of instruction must be found and funeral requests be followed. If a death happens at home, please call us so we can help.

End of Life Decisions

When asked, most Americans say they would prefer to die at home in the company of family and friends. This preference, together with fears about suffering in pain, losing control, being a burden to others, and being abandoned, has led many to consider hospice care. This approach is appropriate when a cure is no longer possible. Hospice care enables patients to maintain a good quality of life in their last days, and to die in dignity. By managing symptoms, hospice workers help the dying to be alert and comfortable while living out the remainder of their lives in familiar surroundings. Hospice care coordinates the medical, psychological, and spiritual aspects of dying for those in their last days and their families.
