How a Cemetery Serving Scottsdale Residents Can Help When Death Occurs

The death of a loved one is not an event that anyone likes to discuss, and so, when a death does occur, having to make arrangements for the funeral and disposal of the remains can become a daunting task. Fortunately, the employees of a local cemetery serving Scottsdale can help you make the process as easy as possible.

Depending upon the location and the circumstances of the death, there may be different steps you will have to take to ensure the body is properly transported.

If death occurs in an institution

Examples of institutions are hospitals, nursing homes, and hospices. If death occurs in a facility that specializes in end-of-life care, the staff should take care of all necessary legal steps. All you will generally have to do is notify the cemetery or funeral home of your choice and get them to sign release paperwork on the body.

If death occurs in the home

If an at-home death is anticipated, for example at the end of a terminal illness, then all you need to do is call the cemetery serving Scottsdale of your choice. The cemetery will be able to take care of any legal requirements. Many times, the family of someone with a terminal illness will make arrangements for the funeral ahead of time to keep from being overwhelmed immediately after the death.

If death occurs elsewhere

If the death is caused by an accident or an unanticipated illness, call 911 immediately. Police and emergency responders will notify the Medical Examiner’s office. Only they have the power to release the body of an accident victim to a cemetery. Mountain View is a family-owned funeral home and cemetery serving Scottsdale.
