Painting Workshop

Since October 2013 a retired nursery school teacher has been offering creative painting lessons for "our" affected parents. Every two weeks (taking turns with our Sewing Workshop) they can participate in the three-hour Painting Workshop and artistically express their creativity, imagination and emotions. The painting sessions also give the affected parents a break from the often exhausting daily care routine and help them think about themselves and perhaps even rediscover a hobby that they were forced to neglect because of their child's illness. They use brushes and paint to create small and big works of art under professional guidance; for many, these works of art become a favourite keepsake that reminds them of their time at the Sternenbrücke.

Grief counselling

Regular services for "our" families:

  • Regular conversations with parents during their respite care stays at the Sternenbrücke.
  • Twice yearly meetings for orphaned families.
  • The Rainbow Club, where the siblings can talk to children of the same age about their feelings and fears under the caring guidance of our grief counsellors.
  • Experience Days for orphaned siblings, which they spend with people of the same age and our grief counsellors.
  • A monthly Grief Café for parents whose child died in our hospice. 
  • A separate Grief Café for grandparents whose grandchild died in our hospice, which takes place once a year.
  • The annual Day of Remembrance, to which "our" families are invited to the Sternenbrücke to commemorate their deceased children.

Support for siblings

During their stay at the Sternenbrücke the siblings have access to their own rooms and activities which are above all designed to be fun:

  • The Creative Room for siblings on the ground floor can be used to paint and make handicrafts with our educators.
  • Another save haven for the siblings is the Recreation Room on the top floor. Here siblings and their parents can spend quality time with each other without the focus being on caring for the sick child. They can play pool and board games here, watch television and use the computer with internet access.
  • There are also two playgrounds for outdoor activities: for younger children in the protected courtyard of the children's hospice and for the slightly older children there is a playground in the large garden, which includes a climbing frame and a mudslide.
  • In the kitchen the siblings can bake and cook under the supervision of our educators.
  • In the disabled-friendly Playroom they can play and chat with their sick siblings.

About us

Company details

We cannot add days to life, but we can add life to days.
The world comes to a standstill when you hear: "There is nothing else we can do for your child...".

The Sternenbrücke children's hospice provides respite care for affected families for at least 28 days a year
during the long period of illness, to give them the opportunity to recuperate and gain new strength. The Sternenbrücke also supports the families during the final stage of a child's life and after the loss of a child.
