Nchini Marekani, watu wengi hufa katika hospitali au nyumba za uuguzi. Wauguzi na madaktari watajua cha kufanya mtu akifa. Wao huuliza maswali kukuongoza na kukusaidia kufanya maamuzi. Wamarekani wanaweza kusema “kuaga” au “kufariki” badala ya “kufa.” Wanaweza kutumia maneno “hayati” au “mpendwa wako mmoja” au “mwili wa wafu” wakizungumzia kuhusu mwili.

In the USA, most people die in a hospital or nursing home. The nurses and doctors will know what to do when someone dies. They will ask questions to guide you and help you make decisions. Americans may say “passed away” or “passed” instead of “died.” They may use the words “the deceased” or “your loved one” or “remains” when they talk about the body.

Mtu akifa nyumbani

When someone dies at home

Mtu akifa nyumbani kutokana na ugonjwa, unaweza kuwa na mtunzi wa nyumbani au mfanyakazi wa faya kukusaidia. Huna haja ya kufanya kitu chochote hadi utakapokuwa tayari. Unaweza kuchukua muda unaohitaji kwa sherehe ya kidini, desturi au maandalizi. Wafanyakazi wa afya wanaweza kutangaza kifo rasmi na kujaza fomu.

If someone dies at home from illness, you may have a hospice or medical worker to help you. You do not need to do anything until you are ready. You can take the time you need for any religious ceremony, custom or preparations. The medical workers can make the official death pronouncement and fill in the forms.

Mazishi na kuchoma maiti

Funerals and cremation

Maiti lazima iende katika chumba cha maiti ili kutayarishwa kwa ajili ya mazishi. Mazishi katika chumba cha maiti ni ghali sana. Ikiwa mwili utachomwa (kuchomwa na kupatiwa jivu), huna haja ya kulipa kwa ajili ya mazishi katika chumba cha maiti. Mtu akifa, mwili unaweza kwenda moja kwa moja kutoka hospitalini au nyumba yako hadi eneo la kuchomwa.

A dead body must go to a funeral home to be prepared for burial. Funeral homes are very expensive. If the body is to be cremated (burned with the ashes given to you), you do not need to pay for a funeral home. When someone dies, the body can go straight from the hospital or your home to a crematorium.

Huna haja ya kununua jeneza ghali (sanduku kwa ajili ya mazishi). Kuna mbao rahisi na kadibodi ambayo inafaa kwa kuchoma mwili na kwa ajili ya mazishi. Unaweza kufanya sherehe ya mazishi mwenyewe au kuchagua huduma za kidini.

You do not need to buy an expensive casket (box for burial). There are simple wooden and cardboard caskets that are suitable for cremation and for burial. You may do your own funeral ceremonies or choose a religious service.
