Coordinating with Family and Agencies

When a family is dealing with the death of a loved one, there is much to consider. Co-ordination with friends, family, hospitals, funeral homes, airlines and local communities can be daunting and tricky.

It is important to take the time to understand the necessary steps for transporting and burying human remains in order to give your beloved one the farewell they deserve.

  • Team Aid coordinates with family and friends

    When someone close dies, the family must be informed of the death and provided with appropriate resources for treatment. Team Aid provides guidance on what to do in such a situation, including how best to inform those affected by the loss and how to prepare them for any necessary travel arrangements.

  • Team Aid co-ordinate with hospitals and funeral homes

We liaise with hospitals or nursing homes if needed to ensure that all paperwork is taken care of before transporting remains. This also includes coordinating with funeral homes so that they have all the relevant information required for proper burial or cremation services.

  • Team Aid Co-ordinate With Airlines, Embassies And Local Communities

For international transport of human remains, TeamAid provides assistance to arrange transportation and burial of human remains. Coordinating with airline staff, hospitals and funeral homes is also part of the process. We can help make sure that all parties involved are aware of their responsibilities during this difficult time.

When coordinating transport for human remains it is important that you have all documents checked and ready prior to travel. This includes all relevant visa paperwork as well as death certificates from any medical facility where the deceased stayed during their final days. Without this paperwork, transportation can become difficult or even impossible. In addition, when flying out of an airport it will likely be required that a body bag and other necessary materials will also have to be acquired. Transporting human remains is subject to the same security regulations as any other passenger, so it is important to contact the airline beforehand in order to make sure all necessary steps are taken care of.

When it comes to burial or cremation there are many options available depending on preference, budget and location. Burial can take place in a cemetery plot, mausoleum or family plot. Cremation can occur either at a funeral home or at a dedicated crematorium. In some cases, families may choose to have their loved one’s ashes buried, stored in an urn or scattered in an area meaningful for them. Coordinating with local authorities and communities is vital in order to ensure that any necessary burial rights are respected and all the paperwork is taken care of.

Ultimately, it is important to take your time when coordinating with friends, family, hospitals, funeral homes, airlines, embassies and local communities regarding the transportation and burial of human remains. It can be a difficult process but by taking the necessary steps you can give your beloved one the farewell they deserve. By following these guidelines you will have more peace of mind knowing that your loved one’s remains have been handled properly.

It is important to take the time to understand the necessary steps for transporting and burying human remains in order to give your beloved one the farewell they deserve.
