Who You Should Call First

It really depends on how and where the death occurred. When a death has been anticipated and your loved one is at home receiving Hospice Care, call your Hospice Care Provider.  The nurse from Hospice will come out to the house to "pronounce date and time of death" and sign the death certificate.  The Hospice Nurse will then call the funeral home or you may call.

If the death occurs in a Nursing Home or Hospital, the Supervisor will call the funeral home.

If the death is unexpected, you must call emergency services first. They will come out to the house and contact the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and your loved one's Primary Care Physician.  Upon receiving permission from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, emergency services will call the funeral home.

The other first calls you should make include:

1. The funeral home
2. Immediate family members
3. Employers
4. Your Pastor
5. Your close friends

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



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.
