The death of a grandparent

When grandparents are present in their grandchildren's lives, they hold a special place in their hearts. What happens when they pass away?

  • When a grandparent's life ends, it is important that parents do not leave their grandchildren without an explanation. Death and bereavement are inevitable experiences in life.
  • Younger children have a right to feel that their grandparents have a place in their hearts and will appreciate a symbolic or physical goodbye.
  • In order to use age-appropriate words, a specialist can be consulted.
