Preparing a child for loss (booklet)

The booklet aims to help you prepare and talk to a child or children about your death. It’s for parents or guardians who are near the end of life. Partners, grandparents and close family members may find it useful, too. It may also help you talk to children who are already dealing with the death of a family member.

You’ll find suggestions on how to:
• tell a child or teenager you are going to die soon
• understand their reactions
• help them cope
• explain what will happen.
