Come share the unique experience of having lost someone to Alzheimer’s or other dementia. This 4-part group will provide support and tools for moving through reflections and memories by reconnecting with who this person was through conversation, journaling and other experiences.
Session 1: Introductions: We will introduce ourselves, the person we are grieving and a little of our story. We will discuss our unique experiences in our grief so far.
Session 2: Telling Our Stories: *Please bring a special linking object or photo to share on screen as we tell our stories. We will take time listening and sharing our stories of our loved ones.
Session 3: New Roles and Emotional Identity: We will discuss the various emotions experienced during the grief process. We will discuss identity changes, difficulties, transitions/adjustments.
Session 4: Coping and Saying Goodbye to the Group: We will discuss healthy coping discovered over the last several weeks, what can moving forward look like while we still connect with our loved ones, and continued plans for coping and support. Conduct a closing ritual.
