As people age, they usually experience multiple losses which make them vulnerable to grief in ways they may not even recognize. In this course, we discuss grief from four viewpoints:
- view of the person with a chronic illness
- view of the person with dementia
- view of the family caregiver of a person with a chronic illness
- view of the family caregiver of a person with dementia.
We then provide suggestions on how to build stronger relationships with residents and the families of residents by increasing your understanding of what they are experiencing.
This course has been pre-approved by the NCCAP.
