Grief is felt when loss is experienced in life. It can be the result of a loss of a spouse, a parent, a child, or even a job. Any significant loss can be emotionally difficult and life-disrupting. But the good news is you don’t have to stay sad forever.
On this special Seniors Today, Dennise and Lisa chat with guests Monica Guilhot Chartrand and Kim White to discuss loss and working through the grieving process in the most positive way.
- What are the different types of grief?
- When will things get back to normal after the death of a loved one?
- What should I say to someone who is grieving?
- What are the typical stages of grief?
- How has counseling and the grieving process changed due to Covid-19 isolation?
- How to manage the long goodbye, when a terminal diagnosis has been given or a loved one is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
