Christmas can be a very difficult time when someone in the family has died. Each year we invite some of the families we have been working with to our Preparing for Christmas event. For most of them this is going to be their first Christmas following the death of someone close. When you are in that situation it is very hard and it can help to see that your family is not the only one. We do activities to remember their special person, we think about what might be difficult, what they might want to change this year and what they might want to keep the same. We also have some fun together, as it was a party after all! We’re sharing some of the advice we give to families and some of their wisdom so it can benefit others.
