This chapter examines the issue of caring for bereaved parents in the context of pediatric hospice care. It explains that the death of one's child can be one of the most severe, debilitating, and enduring losses to grieve and that this loss continues to present itself long after the pain of other deaths might have subsided. The chapter discusses the factors associated with the difficulty of dealing with the loss of a child that hospice care personnel need to understand.
