Good Grief: Finding Hope in the Necessary Losses of Being a Caregiver

Grief and loss touched everyone’s life in various ways and at various times. Loss may include the death of a loved one but also includes the variety of losses that Caregivers experience everyday such as loss of role, loss of job, loss of financial security, loss of physical well-being or even the loss of hobbies. It is important to recognize and honor these losses, while also identifying what may have been learned or gained as a result. Coping strategies are reviewed with concrete examples Caregivers can immediately incorporate into their lives. The group concludes with a brief affirmation exercise to honor a loss.
