Eucalyptus Tree - Youth Grief Support

At Cedar Valley Hospice, we understand that the death of a loved one is hard for everyone, especially a young person. Clear, accurate and age-appropriate communication with unconditional support are critical in helping youth through a difficult time. 

It's important to include young people in tough conversations - it promotes trust and resilience. Our grief counselors offer activities designed to be both fun and educational to help children express their feelings. 

Katie and Quincy Koala are also available to visit and offer friendship, support and hugs to younger children, ages 3-9, while encouraging communication between children and adults on illness, death and grief. 


TreeTV is special programming created as an extension of Cedar Valley Hospice’s Eucalyptus Tree Youth Grief Program. You’ll find helpful information available for youth ages 3-18. TreeTV features videos of craft activities, stories and conversations relating to a young person’s grief journey. TreeTV is simply one of the tools Cedar Valley Hospice utilizes to help youth understand their feelings associated with experiencing the death of someone special.
