Brothers and sisters may need special help to understand their sibling with a life-limiting condition. Our sibling support coordinator works individually with children or as part of one of our sibling support groups that meets regularly to talk and have fun.
Our ‘super siblings groups’ get involved in lots of different projects around our hospice like gardening – planting sunflowers around the summer house and in pots to take home. Playing games, drawing with chalk and planting seeds in the sun are in a day’s work for the ‘super sibs’. Our hospice location, amongst trees on the seafront, give a brilliant location for the children to have fun while appreciating the natural world around them.For more information, please click here.
Tŷ Hafan nurses look after all the needs of our children, allowing parents time to switch off as a carer, and become a parent again.
Our nurses focus on creating precious moments and memories and making sure that the time families have together is spent in the best way possible.
One minute a nurse will be helping a child paint their first painting to administering medication the next. They work full 12 hour shifts, and our hospice is open 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.For more information, please click here.
As well as being a right for every child, play is one of the most important aspects of a child's development, whatever their level of ability.
Our team support every child and young adult to reach their fullest potential through play and often using sensory toys. It’s especially important for children with complex health needs and life-limiting conditions, as it allows children to express themselves, and helps them emotionally, physically, socially and spiritually.
