Helping Patients And Families

For terminally-ill patients and their families, making end-of-life decisions can be tough. As a medical professional, helping them make decisions through such a difficult time is uncomfortable. Yet, in some cases, you might be the only person they can turn to. 

Whole body donation is now becoming a popular final arrangement option for most people. Thus, in-depth knowledge of the body donation process can help you more effectively counsel patients who are interested in this option.

Being A DonorCure Body Donor is Free

Donating your body to science for the advancement of medicine is, undeniably, a selfless act. The least we can do is take care of all expenses relating to the body donation process. From transportation, cremation, and death certificate expenses to returning the cremated remains to the family or scattering them at sea, DonorCure has it covered.

Pre-Screen Your Patient

To make the body donation process easier, DonorCure does a pre-screening for donors. Patients who are on hospice care or are terminally-ill with a life expectancy of six months or less can avail this service. This advance screening process for donors is not a requirement but it will make the process faster and more convenient for families at the time of passing.

A donor’s medical condition at the time of passing can affect their eligibility.
