When Death Occurs


At Home Under Hospice Care:

Call your hospice nurse if they are not already there. They will confirm your loved one’s death and consult with a physician if necessary. When you are ready, the nurse will contact Preble Memory Gardens Funeral Center, (937) 839-4476 for further information or assistance.

At Home Not Under Hospice Care:

When a death occurs outside of a medical institution, and the person is not under hospice care, then it is necessary to first call the coroner or medical examiner to confirm the death. This may be done by calling your local Police or Sheriff’s Office (911). Once the coroner or medical examiner has arrived, let them know of your preference to contact Preble Memory Gardens Funeral Center for further information or assistance.

At An Institution:

When death occurs at a hospital or nursing home, the medical staff will generally take care of the necessary legal steps. All you would need to do is notify the staff that Preble Memory Gardens Funeral Center will be handling arrangements so they can have you sign any necessary release paperwork.
