A Friend relates: "A year or so after my son died, I had a candid conversation with my parents on how it affected them. At the time, I was beginning to work actively with parents and grandparents recently experiencing SIDS death. My parents, and others that I have spoken to in the last four years, have said one hard thing about the loss of the child is that it makes you begin to question your own mortality. Not only is this a scary thing, but they often feel guilty for thinking of themselves and beat themselves up for being selfish."
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.
