Patients in your care face intense challenges which can range from depression and anxiety to unrelenting physical pain and social isolation. Hospice and professional caregivers help patients and families understand their treatment plans. Serving as advocates for patients and their families their work is critical in honoring patients with terminal illnesses and preparing them for what’s next.
The patients also rely on these specially trained professionals to help them learn more about end-of-life issues and options. As the interest in whole body donation continues to grow, so does the need for being able to counsel patients on this end-of-life alternative.
Research For Life works with a wide variety of health and senior care organizations. We provide the resources and information to help a patient navigate through the registration and whole body donation process.
We are a no-cost AATB accredited whole body donation organization that serves as the link between donors and the medical researchers and educators that need human tissue to advance science and medicine.
We were the first to initiate a Guaranteed Donor Program. This program guarantees that, after registration, a donor is accepted at the time of death even if their health conditions should change.
There is never any cost to the donor or their family for the services we provide. Research For Life covers all expenses related to: transportation, filing of death certificate, cremation and return of the cremated remains – either direct return to the family in a dignified urn, spread at sea or no return.
Please note, we do not register donors outside of our current service area which includes the state of Arizona and, excluding some rural areas, Southern California.
