1. Caring for someone who has died can be a very rewarding experience, akin to nursing someone who is sick.

2. The appearance of a body changes soon after death when the skin pales, but other natural changes happen very gradually over a period of weeks.

3. Very few people soil themselves after death.

4. Rigor mortis is the third stage of death and starts a few hours after death, but this is temporary, lasting anywhere between a few hours and a couple of days.

5. If someone had an infection when they die, this infection usually dies with them.
