Process to follow after the death of a resident

In the event of the death of a resident, who has been in receipt of support for cash handling, who has no Will in place and no known next of kin, or the next of kin abdicate responsibility, please refer to the Death Intestate Policy for guidance.


Care employees will be trained in the use of Financial Transaction Forms, and the importance of supporting residents to maintain independence with managing finances as part of the face-to-face Reporting and Documentation session on induction, this will also be built into a three-year refresher period.

Management employees will be required to brief new starters on the policy and procedure as part of their Induction Toolkit.
