Grief and Loss

Sadness and grief are feelings experienced by all ages, however the elderly are more frequently confronted by these emotions as they struggle to come to terms with losses in many aspects of their lives.

The loss of the family home due to increasing incapacity to cope with daily tasks; the loss of independence and mobility due to illness, disability or frailty; the loss of children and grandchildren due to death, divorce and separation; and the loss of peers and friends due to changes in residential location or death may be some of the issues older people struggle with. For many elderly people, the ‘death of self’ as a result of a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or dementia is a burden they may bear long before their physical death.

Often, even if you have good support people helping you through a difficult part of your life, it is useful to meet with someone outside your immediate circle to be able to honestly explore your feelings and work out ways of coping with whatever losses you are faced with. Talking with a counsellor can provide a safe space for you to explore your loss and discover strategies to assist you to deal with it.
