When it comes time to make arrangements, here are some steps to be aware of ahead of time so that we can help you:
Passing away in an institution - When death occurs at a hospital or at nursing home, the medical staff will take care of all legal steps. All you need to do is make sure they know they are to contact Las Rosas Bannworth Funeral Home for the handling of the funeral arrangements. This way, they will have you sign all necessary release paperwork.
Passing away at home – More people are opting for this today when facing terminal illness due to the extensive availability of hospice care. For this situation, just notify hospice that arrangements will be made through us. They will take care of all necessary legal steps. Sometimes, families elect to make pre-arrangements with us so as not to be overwhelmed when the time comes.
Unanticipated deaths - In this situation, have someone immediately call 911. The police and emergency medical personnel will determine all of the appropriate steps to take. Often, the police are able to release the remains directly to our funeral home. However, there are some cases where the body must be taken to a Medical Examiner first in order to determine the exact cause of death.
Death out of the Hillside, NJ area or State - If the death occurs outside of the Hillside area, or outside of New Jersey, call Las Rosas Bannworth Funeral Home at 908-352-6664. We will coordinate arrangements with a local funeral director where the death occurred. We have connections with numerous funeral homes, and can work to save families money by handling arrangements for them. Shortly after the death, you will meet with us in person and begin making funeral service arrangements for your loved one. During this time, we will ask you for personal information about the deceased so as to be better able to complete any necessary documents and help you plan the funeral.
At Las Rosas Bannworth Funeral Home, we pride ourselves on providing quality, compassionate service in a dignified manner at an affordable price. We know this is an overwhelming emotional and financial time. We are here to alleviate as much stress as possible for you and your family.
