Advocating for Hospice & Terminal Patients

Patients in your care face intense challenges ranging 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.

Donating Hope & Saving Lives

Research For Life works with a wide variety of health and senior care organizations. We provide the resources and information to help patients navigate 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 medical researchers and educators who need human tissue to advance science and medicine.

Once registered, the Research For Life Donor Program will accept a donor even if health conditions should change. Please note the limitations. There are factors that can void the acceptance of a donor.

There is never any cost to the donor or their family for our services. Research For Life covers all expenses related to transportation, filing of the death certificate, cremation, and return of the cremated remains – either direct return to the family, spread at sea, or no return.

Please note that we do not register donors outside of our current service area, including the state of Arizona and, excluding some rural areas, Southern California.
