Social work and end-of-life care

Social work is important in end-of-life care

Memorial reminds us of the distress of childhood death

Another of my pictures of memorials – I found this one in Cartmel Priory in the Lake District this summer, in the part of the Priory that used to be a local church – an immense memorial to an obviously much-loved child, who died at the age of nine. A reminder that death in childhood was common at one time, but the distress it caused was nevertheless always real. And so much of the world still experiences that distress far too often.Cartmel Priory memorial to a child who died at 9
