I think i might wear my uniform but will wear a skirt instead of pants.
Do i take a card or anything? Flowers?

I wouldn't take anything to the funeral no. If you really wanted to give flowers, I'd give them afterwards it even send them.

I'd get there about 10.15am. I usually wear a grey dress with black belt. It doesn't sound too great but it looks nice on I have heard of others wearing their favourite colours but family usually make that known before. You don't want to be the only one in bright colours. I think it's lovely of you & I would appreciate it & be thankful if I was the family

No I wouldn't take anything. Your presence is more than enough.
Get there about 1015.
Is there other nurses going? Residents? At my facility if there's residents going they will take the bus and everyone goes together on that. Or carpool.

I wore a black dress to my godmothers funeral recently. It was all that fit at 39 weeks pregnant.
As you cared for him as your job, I would be inclined to wear your work uniform. It would help identify you to family members & your reason for being there. 10-15mins early is sufficient I believe & I wouldn't take anything with me. If you felt the need you could have flowers delivered or sent a condolences card to their home prior. There are usually cards to fill out for attendance.

A close friend passed away a month ago and I wore black slacks with a nice blouse top and ballet flats. I arrived 15 minutes early.
In your situation I would wear the uniform.

I personally would wear your uniform and I probably wouldn't take anything either. I think it's lovely that you are going too, I think it shows the family that he was looked after by a caring person (this can be a big worry to those with family in care). All the best.

When I attend funerals of my residents I wear my work uniform. I arrive about 10 minutes prior, pay my respects to the family and leave immediately after. I make sure to sit at the back. (I don't make a habit of attending many funerals, just those who are very special and I know the family)
You do not bring anything, your presence is enough and will probably mean a lot to them.
My condolences to you and the family.

When I attend a funeral of my pts... I'm always in uniform and don't take anything. Also I chat after the funeral and pay my respects not before. My mum who is a DON of a N/H does the same.
