Dying At Home
Some people choose to die at home where they feel safe and comfortable. The surroundings are familiar and they can be in the presence of their family, loved ones and friends.

When someone who has chosen to die at home passes away, there is no immediately urgency to do anything. The family may need a short period of time to understand or accept the event that just happened.

Following a death at home, when you are ready, you will need to contact the deceased's doctor (G.P.), at their local surgery or the 'out-of-hours' service telephone number to notify them of the death.

 
A doctor, locum, Community Nurse or other medical practitioner, will need to attend the deceased to, 'Certify the Medical Cause of Death'.

The 'Medical Certificate of the Cause of Death,' is unlikely to be issued at this stage. It will be issued by the deceased person's doctor and should be available from the local surgery – usually, the next day. This certificate is not the 'Death Certificate.' The 'Death Certificate' is issued by the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages usually within FIVE days of the occurrence.

The attending doctor, locum, Community Nurse or medical practitioner will provide more information regarding this subject.

Please contact us, Exmouth & District Funeral Services at any stage whilst you are waiting for the doctor or nurse to attend or, following their attendance. 'We.' are here to help, to provide you with any advice, guidance or support that you might need at this difficult time. 'We' can only bring the deceased into our care following the doctor or nurse's attendance. If you would like the deceased to remain at home for a short period of time, please advise us when making contact with us - we will give guide you accordingly.

Please consider calling a relative or friend who may be able to stay with you and offer their support during these initial stages.
