Description

Children grieve differently than adults. Although the unit of care in hospice is the patient and family, emphasis is often on the grown members of the family and the anticipatory grief and bereavement needs of children and adolescents are sometimes not met adequately. In this paper, hands-on strategies for working with children both before and after a significant death are presented, as well as appropriate context information on the grieving process for youth under age 18.
