When my first child was a baby, I worked for a friend who was at the end of her life, helping out in her apartment and running the necessary errands, etc. It was a rich experience! I have many fond memories of watching their interactions, their eye contact, their connection. I envision an opportunity for families to get more comfortable with the life cycle from early on and I notice that sometimes it is easier to adjust to the realities of death with friendly strangers, then apply those lessons to your own family. This would also contribute to reducing the stress on parents of early childhood by offering productive and meaningful occupation that allows someone to stay home with the child. It would also reduce the need for outside services because people who are cared for in the home do better.
