"Love Legacy: A guidebook for families anticipating the death of a parent" hopes to help families through a parent's illness and death by providing interactive activities to maintain connections, continue the parent's memories after death, and ease the transitions. Written by a mental health professional, it is meant to help kids with healthy grieving, beginning before the parent dies.
The goals of the Love Legacy Guidebook are threefold: to facilitate healthy grieving through addressing the challenges that are inevitable when a parent dies, guiding the family in making adjustments, and continuing connections both before and after the death. Not all children are allotted the opportunity to partake in the process of anticipatory grief. Those that are, have the benefit of processing emotions, spending extra time with the parent, and saying goodbye.
