For Parents: • Try to arrange for at-home care. Parents need rest and support. When possible, seek and use local children or youth hospices which can give specialist and respite care for caregivers. • Marriages get stressed and parental depression is common, so get support from other people, family members and parents in the same situation. • Be choosy with whom you spend time. Pick people who can help you feel relaxed. • Find family structures and methods that fit the child or youth and you. • Let the child or youth know you will be okay when they are gone. Talk about what is happening. • Be patient and kind with the child or youth and yourself.
