If a death has occurred or may happen soon:

At Home:

When a death occurs at home and the deceased is not in hospice care, call 911 to let them know of the death. Emergency personnel will respond and will contact the coroner for instruction on how to proceed. The coroner makes the decision to take the deceased into their care or release the deceased to the care of a crematory or funeral home.

At a Hospice or Care Facility:

When a death occurs at a hospice or care facility, their staff will notify the funeral home or cremation provider of the death. Once your loved one is released by the facility, they will be placed into our care. Use our Care Center Form to ensure our care facility has all the information they need ahead of time.

Amy and Jessica are truly amazing! They were so kind and considerate to my father and me when we were having to make arrangements for my sister in Florissant, MO. We are from Lilburn, GA and having to deal with traveling and coordinating, they seriously could not have made this experience any easier than they did and I would recommend them to anyone because of how well they took care of us. Such sweet people and I'll never forget them. Wonderful people and the prices for their services I highly doubt could be matched, extremely reasonable and beautiful at the same time. Very thoughtful, respectful, and helped us every step of the way by always calling to make sure we were good on schedules and making our traveling that much easier. Thank you so much!!! Sending lots of love, Lester and Catherine
