Grief is a human experience and it often feels messy or is accompanied by not knowing if you are "doing it right". Grief and loss can feel isolating. And many caregivers share different examples of grief, such as grieving the loss of your old life during caregiving and then also grieving the loss of the person you are caregiving for.

Normal does not exist during grief and in today's episode, we chat with Tricia Wallace, a Clinical Counsellor with Parkinson Society BC about the topic of caregiver grief and loss and suggestions on how to work with these emotions.

Highlights:

  • Grief and the grief process.
  • Mourning rituals and practices.
  • Grieving during caregiving (loss of 'old life') and also loss of the person you are caregiving for.
  • There is no right or wrong way to grieve.
  • Normal does not exist during grief.
  • End of life planning.
