The Role of the US Hospice in after life care:

Clinicians play a crucial role in the care of the bereaved & body cooling

Innovative and evolving developments in bereavement care are crucial to the long term well being of the bereaved. The care that clinicians provide has a long lasting impact for years to come.


The CuddleBlanket is a pioneering solution that plays a crucial role in providing comfort and solace to bereaved families during an incredibly difficult time. Silverman and Klass’s (1996) ‘Continuing Bonds’ theory explored the idea that having
a connection or tie to the deceased is not only normal but a healthy part of the grieving process.


By offering the choice of spending time with loved ones to make tangible memories, clinicians can help to facilitate this invaluable connection. Families can experience a sense of closeness and connection, fostering a healing environment amidst their grief while remaining in the care of the hospice.


Ultimately, the importance of the CuddleBlanket lies in its ability to enable clinicians to provide comfort, dignity, and healing to bereaved families, making it an essential component of compassionate bereavement care offered by hospices.
