Initial Steps, What Do I Do?
Few of us are prepared when a death occurs and we often need support and assistance both at the initial time of death and throughout the funeral planning process, as well as continued support as we come to terms with the loss.
The majority of deaths are from natural causes and can occur in Hospitals, Aged Care Facilities or in the family home. In most cases, a Cause of Death Certificate will be issued by the attending Doctor.
Once you have contacted Joseph Medcalf, we would recommend that you contact close family or friends to be with you if it is possible at this time. In our experience, having someone close-at-hand is invaluable as you are likely to benefit from the support and help during the immediate hours following the passing of a loved one.
