Some things are simply out of our control. Add a global pandemic to the mix, full of isolation and social distancing, and life has become even more stressful!
We have lost so much: our ability to connect with others, our usual routines, perhaps even our creature comforts like good food and travel. Some losses hit us harder than others, however, like losing someone we love. As a caregiver, you may be dealing with loved one’s sudden death or a more gradual loss bit-by-bit due to memory loss, chronic illness or aging.
In our society, we find it hard to face and honour loss, death, and dying, yet it happens all around us during our lives. Perhaps not having been taught how to grieve properly has led us to avoid it as much as possible. Does everyone start to feel better after a certain time? Does time really heal? What we have come to understand is that each person grieves in unique ways, and that facing the emotions that come with loss can enrich life moving forward.
Discover your inner resources for coping with grief
Grief and loss are powerful emotions. They are a part of caregiving and life that cannot be avoided, even before the pandemic. The Wellness Centre team understands, however, that it’s been especially hard to find healthy closure during these unusual times. WE invite you to join us online for an intimate and caring discussion on the topic of Embracing Grief and Loss with CMA Medeiros, certified Grief Recovery Specialist®. She will help you discover the resources that you already have within you to grieve fully and well.
Join us on a Wednesday evening to explore why it is so important to honour the grieving process and how to find a path to healing within a supportive community.
