Post-Death Care at Home – The Body: Moving, Washing, Dressing & Preparations…


….

Date: March 16, 2021

01) Part 1 — Moving the Body


“This video shows the procedure for six women to move a 6’2” man’s (dead) body across a room and through a doorway, carrying him on a large sheet.

CINDEA’s other instructional videos can be found on our channel, at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwE3wTIBVkNMuWhYv4u_RIg, or visit our website at http://www.cindea.ca


02) Part 2 — Washing the Head, Face, and Mouth


“This video shows the procedure for washing the hair and face, as well as cleaning the teeth and mouth.”


03) Part 3 — Washing the Body


“This video shows the procedure for washing the whole body (legs, arms and trunk) — as well as rolling the body on its side to be able to wash the back.”


04) Part 4 — Dressing the Body


“This video shows the procedure for dressing the body (in this case, with pants and shirt) — as well as how to set the eyes and mouth so that they remain shut.”


05) Part 5 — Final Preparations


“Option 1: Moving the body into the casket

This part of the video shows the procedure to move the body into the casket — using the same simple single-sheet technique as in Part 1 (Moving the Body).

Option 2: Shrouding the body

This part of the video shows the procedure to shroud the body in the simplest form of shroud — using a large (queen or king sized) sheet and 4 ties.

There are 6 shroud patterns (2 unsewn ones, including the one demonstrated here, and 4 different sewn ones) — with both written and graphic instructions, and approved for use in ‘green burials’ — that are available on CINDEA’s ‘Post-death Care and Home Funerals page under the ‘Shroud Patterns’ section.”

Very interesting and educational.
