SeeSaw offers a pre bereavement service for families where a parent or carer has been diagnosed with a terminal illness and is dying and there are children up to the age of 18 in the family. Families can self-refer into this service or can ask one of the palliative care team to make contact with SeeSaw on their behalf. We will work with the parents to help them to have difficult conversation with their children, to develop practical strategies for managing family life, to manage information and think about the impact on the child. We will work directly with children to support and facilitate conversations with parents, express their feelings and wishes, keep them informed and understand the impact on their life. We will work with the family before the death and afterwards while they are adjusting to their loss and the changes to their family life.
