FREE LIVE WEBINAR!
In the frame of Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month, Alvin T. Harmon, our Bereavement Care Services & Compass Program Manager brings to you his live keynote presentation: The Long Goodbye, Understanding Anticipatory Grief Associated with Caregivers of Patients with Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Dementias.
“You don’t know why you burst into tears when others ask how your loved-one is doing. The shock is still overwhelming. The pain is still real. You have no idea when you first noticed it but the person you love has somehow managed to slip away. The most difficult part is that they’re still standing right in front of you. You want to be caring. You want to do and say all the “right” things. But in reality, what you feel is that it just isn’t fair. You try to count yourself lucky for each day, month or year that you have with them, but as each one passes, your hope for the future, the works of the past and the joys of all those created memories are now being viewed by an audience of one. What you might not understand is that your grieving process may have already begun.”
