As people age, they usually experience multiple losses which make them vulnerable to grief in ways they may not even recognise. In this course, we will be talking about grief from four viewpoints:
- The view of the person with a chronic illness.
- The view of the person with dementia.
- The view of the carer of a person with a chronic illness.
- The view of the carer of a person with dementia.
If you are a professional carer, you may experience some of the same grief symptoms as the family carer, especially if you have a strong relationship with the person you are caring for. If you have some other role in a residential care community or an adult day centre, this course will help you to build stronger relationships with your residents/clients and their families by increasing your understanding of what they are experiencing.
