When a loved one passes away at a hospital or nursing care facility, the staff typically assists with some of the arrangements, such as getting in touch with the funeral home indicated by the family. The family and/or friends of the deceased are responsible for informing others about the death. If a person is in the situation where they are left alone to notify others of the passing, he or she should request that a friend or neighbor sit with them as they make the calls. This will provide the support needed to deal with the first hours following the loss.
One of the first calls that should be made is to a licensed funeral director who will transport the body to the crematorium (if direct cremation is preferred) or to their funeral home, get the death certificate, assist the family in casket, urn and monument selection and assist in composing and publishing the obituary. The funeral director will also arrange the funeral service or memorial ceremony and make the plans for traditional burial, if selected. The funeral home also provides help with notifying the loved one’s employer, attorney, insurance company and banking institutions. Often, the funeral director will aid the family in receiving veterans and social security benefits. Additionally, he or she will provide aftercare or bereavement services. The funeral directors of Colonial Chapel Funeral Home and Crematory would be honored to provide these services and many more to the families of Worth, Il. Should a family have an urgent need, the family may call them at 973-335-4700 to receive immediate, professional and affordable assistance.
