The Children's Hospital Bereavement Program provides compassionate support and guidance to bereaved parents and family members following the death of a child - as well as resources to help children cope when a loved one or parent is facing serious illness or death. We offer individual and family support from Child Life Specialists, as well as education, community referrals and support groups.
It is important to talk honestly with children about the potential death of a family member or friend. To help you do this - we’ve created a grief and bereavment guide for parents. It offers guidelines for helping children cope with death by age.
We've also created several new pieces that speak to helping children when a loved one, parent, or grandparent is hospitalized or diagnosed with COVID-19.
When a child dies, at any age, the family suffers intense pain and may feel hopeless and isolated. Compassionate Friends provides comfort, hope and support to every family experiencing the death of a son or a daughter, a brother or a sister, or a grandchild. It's mission is also to help others better assist the grieving family.
The Perinatal and Neonatal Bereavement Program sponsored by Children's Hospital is available 24/7. To learn more, call our Bereavement Coordinator at 423-778-5149.
