What does an Embalmer do?
When a person dies, the embalmer prepares the body for burial. This is not done with long-term preservation as a goal, but simply to prevent deterioration during the period before the funeral and to improve the condition of the body, should family members wish a viewing. The work can be very creative and artistic, finding ways to restore bodies to a natural appearance. It involves working with precision tools and instruments, following rules in a highly organized process. Tasks include:
cosmetic or restorative work to improve appearance
post-trauma facial reconstruction
embalming and preserving the body, removing body fluids and injecting preservative chemicals, disinfecting and sanitizing
dressing the deceased and placing the body in the casket
keeping records and assisting in funeral home maintenance
Sometimes the embalmer also serves as funeral director, caring for all aspects of funeral preparation and helping families complete necessary paperwork.
