Program interventions for children at the end of life and their siblings.

Abstract

An analogy may be drawn between readying a family for the birthof a child and readying a family for the death of a child. Both ex-periences bring about an intense fusion of the emotional, physical,and spiritual realms for those bearing witness. Preparation, com-munication, and collaboration are essential to provide optimalsupport for the children at the end of life, the parents, and thebrothers and sisters.
