The level of body care may vary depending on how the person passed away and what they and their families wishes are.
We try and care for the person who has passed away as naturally as possible. For someone who stays with us, we have an option where their body is kept cool enough so traditional embalming may not be necessary. They would still be bathed, dressed, hair and makeup done (if appropriate) and necessary body care carried out. We care for them so that they look as natural as possible for any family or friends who would like to spend time with them prior to the service.
For someone who is to go home prior to the service, we carry out the same level of body care in addition to traditional embalming to help slow down what nature intends.
