Who You Should Call First

It really depends on how and where the death occurred. Where a death that has been anticipated occurs at home, call your attending physician, or home care nurse.  Please note that if it is an expected death and you call 911, they will attempt to resuscitate. 

If the death is unexpected, call emergency services at 911.  

The nurse, doctor or medical examiner will then either arrange for transportation to the Medical Examiner's Office if they need more information to determine the cause of death, or they will allow for the funeral home to come directly to the home to transfer the person who has passed from the home to the funeral home.  We are available 24 hours per day, should the death occur in the middle of the night. 

The other first calls you should make include:

1. Your immediate family
2. Choice Memorial & Cremation Services
3. Your close friends
4. Your clergy
5. Employers

When you think about it, these calls are being made for two distinct reasons:

  • To notify the authorities and obtain assistance in dealing with the body
  • To notify the social circle, and gather family and friends together for support

Naturally the first of those reasons takes priority, because it is your responsibility to care for your loved one. In fact, we think of this as one of the final acts of love that you can take. Placing their body in the care of professionals can be a relief, and will give you the space to make those calls involved in the second category of outreach: the purely social notifications that will surround you with support.

The death of a loved one can make us feel numb and ineffective. If this is the case for you, and you'd like additional advice about who to call, and when, reach out to us.
