Living grief and bereavement
We have been working on a project that focuses on the complex feelings of grief carers can experience when they care for a person with dementia. We realised that this was an important topic after conversations with carers. They spoke openly and bravely about their experiences of grief during and after their caring role. To gather more information on this topic and to open up this conversation we asked carers on our network across the UK to share their experiences with us.
We have produced two booklets about the feelings of grief that carers can experience when caring for a person with dementia. You can download these free of charge here.
Watch, read and listen to carers from across the UK sharing their feelings, thoughts, and experiences of grief. Click here.
We regularly hold events talking about this topic, you can find out the date of the next one on our events page.
This session is intended as a follow-up to our Living Grief and Bereavement online sessions. If you have attended one or more of our Living Grief and Bereavement sessions then please feel free to join this event. We hope you will find a supportive, pressure-free space that allows you to connect with other carers and share common experiences in caring for someone.
We acknowledge that everyone’s experience is unique, and that not everyone will recognise themselves in what has been shared in these resources. Everything that you see and read in these resources comes straight from carers. We are committed to continuing this conversation so please get in touch if there’s anything you want to contribute.
