Im wondering if anyone can help me with some information I need. A am writting an assignment on addressing needs of particular groups, I have chosen Jehovah's Witnesses.
I am wondering if this group has particular needs when a relative dies in a healthcare setting?
Also do they believe in cremation? or burial only?
any assistance would be greatly apprecaited as IM using this as a way of educating my self and my peers.

I was raised a JW. They believe that when you die you are totally unconscious and will be until the Resurrection when the earth will become the paradise it was in the days of Adam and Eve and this is how all the righteous will spend eternity.
Don't know where they will put all those people...
Also, I never figured out why or asked, but there are no windows in a JW meeting house.
My mom and cousins and relatives still abide by those beliefs but I don't. I like the reserved atmosphere of the JW church, though. When my kids go to "church" it is the Kingdom Hall.
I'm also against blood transfusions but not for religious reasons...
