Resources 

Death and dying can be a hard subject to talk about no matter what age you are. But across Havens Hospices we work with patients, families and their loved ones to try and help them to die well. 

We have created four resources, which are free to download below, that can be used to support someone with a complex or incurable condition or if their loved ones has died. 

  • 'Books for special situations' provides a list of books suitable for a range of ages to help them safely explore their feelings.
  • 'How to create a sand jar' can be used to create a keepsake for a child or adult who wants to hold onto memories of their special person.
  • 'How to make a button tree' is a simple activity which can encourage a child or adult to talk about a particular time in their life, or their special person's. 
  • 'How to create a memory box' can be used by a child or adult who wants to hold onto memories of their special person or a person who wants to pass on treasured memories to loved ones.

These resources could be used at home or at school. For more information please contact us.
