Caring for the deceased

You might want to keep the deceased at home for some time.

The process of caring for the departed is different in different cultures and religions. Some families like to carefully wash and dry the body and sometimes wash and tidy their loved one’s hair. They might also close the eyes and support the mouth to stay closed.

Some people decide not to prepare the deceased in any particular way. Or if you prefer, you can ask the funeral director to wash and dress your relative’s body.

In some situations, a funeral director might recommend they embalm the body. You could contact a funeral director if you wish to find out more about embalming.
