This is terrible, but I really want to know. When my mother passes away, what then? Literally, I have no idea. If she dies at home, who do I call? 911? An ambulance? What do I do? If she dies in a hospital, does the hospital staff tell me what's next? How about if she is in hospice? Do they handle things? I am the only caregiver to my elderly (over 90) mother, and she is in relatively good health, but that day will come, and I want to be sure that I do the right thing. I've never had to handle death arrangements. By the way, she wants no funeral, just cremation, with a memorial mass.
