SIDS is the number one cause of infant death for children 1 month to 1 year old. 5,000 to 6,000 deaths each year in infants are SIDS deaths. The most occurences of SIDS deaths are between 2 and 4 months of age. 90% occur by 6 months of age. There are increased deaths in the winter months, peaking in January. Male infants are affected more than females.
I work in a residential home and would like some tips on how to handle one of our residents deaths. When we lose a resident it is my resposibility to notify the familly ( of the lost one), I would like some advice on how to handle this situation because I am not very experienced And find it hard to break such news. Thank you.
