When my mom died under Hospice care, the nurse came out and declared/called it, so I could then contact the cremation service. Since my mom's death last December, my dad's health is declining fast. He isn't in Hospice care and I don't know who I'd call if he gets his wish and dies at home in his sleep. Seems like calling 911, with all the folks they send out, isn't warranted if he's already gone. As an aside, he does have a DNR. Even with Google, I can't figure it out. Please advise and thanks.
