Working with a funeral director to complete the death certificate
The staff at the care facility will likely be able to begin the process of issuing a death certificate, though you will need a licensed funeral director to complete the death certificate and remove the body from the care facility.
Removing the body from the residence
Legally, most assisted living or convalescent care facilities must remove the body from their premises immediately. This means that you will need to engage the services of a funeral director very quickly.
