Checklist of things to do when a loved one dies

The death of a loved one can come as a hard blow to people who have spent years together. After a person passes away, they leave a part of their life behind that must be closed, like, for example, their bank accounts and final bills. In addition to all that, you also need to arrange a funeral for your loved one so that everyone can remember them in the best way possible. But before you can get to that part, there is a lot that must be done.

While the entire process might overwhelm you, keeping a checklist of things to do can help ease the process.

  1. Legal pronouncement of death

There are various conditions under which your loved ones may have passed away. It could be a prolonged disease in hospice care, accident, sudden death or terminal illness. Under every condition, you need a family doctor or a certified doctor to confirm the death and the time. You can either call a funeral home or call emergency services to confirm the death on paper.

  1. Let relatives know

The next thing you need to do is to call up your relatives and neighbours or send out group texts to all the people the deceased was in touch with.
