Grieving when caring ends
- Length: 2 hours
- Suitable for: Unpaid carers (family/friend). This session is for former family carers to help them in their grief.
This is a supportive session for carers and as such not really suitable for professionals, who are just wishing to learn more about the subject. (Do please visit our ‘professionals section’ of our website, to view sessions that may be more appropriate).
- Delivered: face to face
- Price: funded for people who live, work or play in Cheshire East and West Cheshire employees.
Grief is a normal, natural response to loss and bereavement that everyone will experience at some point in their life. Many of us, however, have a very limited understanding of how grief can affect our feelings, thoughts, behaviours and physical health.
For former carers, grief can be made more complex by the dual losses of the person and their role as a carer. This is particularly true for people who have been a carer for a long period or if the caring role has become a significant part of their identity.
The session gives former carers:
- A better understanding of the grieving process
- An understanding of normal grief, and when support may be required
- Opportunities to share their experiences
- Thursday 18 January 2024: 13:30 – 15:30 at Spring Farm Business Centre, Moss Lane, Crewe CW1 4RJ
