Notifiying everyone of a loved one's death can be a daunting task. Close family members and friends will need to be notified in a personal manner such as a telephone call. Don't be afraid to reach out to the first few people that you notify and ask them to help you inform other members of the family.
Once your family and close friends have been notified, you can notify other friends and acquaintances through e-mail. This method may be easier than trying to get in touch with everyone by phone. It also will save you from the task of re-telling the story over and over. If you are the closest relative to the deceased, it is appropriate to delegate this task to another family member or friend.
I work in a residential home and would like some tips on how to handle one of our residents deaths. When we lose a resident it is my resposibility to notify the familly ( of the lost one), I would like some advice on how to handle this situation because I am not very experienced And find it hard to break such news. Thank you.
