Remember a parent who lost a child with a card or phone call on the birthday of the child and the one-year anniversary. The bereaved parent will be painfully aware of these dates but others may be reluctant to acknowledge them. Let the parent know that you are aware of what day it is and that your thoughts are with them. If you are very close to them you may also want to invite them out for the day and help them busy themselves. Take your lead from them.
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.
