Abstract:

A terminally ill child is the focus of attention of its close ones. The family wants to minimise the child’s suffering. Support is also offered by helping organisations. The concentration on the ill child can lead to the situation where the needs of the healthy siblings are neglected. „The total pain” of the ill child includes its family members, therefore, supporting the ill child’s healthy siblings is one of the main goals of children’s hospices. Hospice assistance is based on a family systems theory so the scope of hospice activities is very wide. Although helping the ill child is the priority, the hospices also protect the family from the destructive influence of illness. One of the forms of support offered to the healthy siblings has a psycho-pedagogical dimension. It aims at minimising the negative effects of the child’s illness and helping the siblings to go back to normal life after the child’s death. The interdisciplinary nature of hospice assistance is the chance for successful implementation of these assumptions.
