Bereavement care and support is an integral part of the care provided by Children’s Hospice.

Bereavement care and support is an integral part of the care provided by Children’s Hospice. Bereaved parents tell us that having the continuity of relationships within Children’s Hospice throughout their child’s life and following their death, is invaluable. 

Ann Lappin, Family Support Team Leader describes the support offered to bereaved families by Children’s Hospice.

‘’It’s a difficult world to navigate. Hospice offers support for the whole family’. 

Ann talks about how bereavement affects families reflecting that there is no one way to grieve.

Bronagh tells us about her brother and how the Children’s Hospice helped them be a family again:

‘’Children’s Hospice helped us to be a family again. When my brother Stephen died, I felt like a part of me died with him’’ Bronagh Doherty, Sister
