The Butterfly Suite provides a private and peaceful bedroom and lounge, a place for families to take time to say goodbye to children after they have died.
We understand that the death of a child is one of the most heart-breaking experiences that a family will ever go through. Even though grieving is a natural response, it can be so painful and overwhelming that day to day living may become hard to manage. Therefore, our dedicated care team is here to give help and guidance with practical arrangements
Jigsaw can offer a space for your child to be cared for after they have died for a period of up to seven days.
The child will be cared for in our Butterfly Room which is a cooled bedroom with an attached lounge for parents and family members to use.
Each child will receive a memory box which will allow staff to support families and create keepsakes.
Care in the Butterfly Suite is provided by Jigsaw staff and during that time we will work side by side with funeral directors and families to provide personal care.
Private accommodation is available for families to stay, if required. Bereavement support and counselling can be provided if you feel it would be helpful for a period of time after your child has died.
Who can access the Butterfly Suite?
Any family living within the local area can access the suite after the death of their child, even if the family is not previously known to Jigsaw. Our care teams are here to support every local family during this difficult time.
