Supporting Dying Children and their Families
A Handbook For Christian Ministry
This practical guide offers invaluable and sensitive advice for all who work alongside terminally ill children, their families and families who have been bereaved. Paul Nash helpfully describes the different types of care that are needed depending on the age of the child - from baby to teenager - and on the particular needs of the child's family. He also provides resources to help with remembering and celebrating the life of a child, including rituals that can be used in preparation for death, at the time of death and at funeral or memorial services.
