Anticipatory grief is  common among people facing the eventual death of a loved one, possibly someone they are caring for. Most people expect to feel grief after a death but  a Carer could experience fear, anxiety, worry, anger and more, before the death of a loved one. This course will help Carers identify what Anticipatory Grief is and understand the impact it could have on them as a Carer and help them cope.

Course aim:

  • To provide support and promote health and wellbeing by helping Carers understand the impact of Anticipatory Grief and loss.
  • To help individuals identify the strategies that will help them through difficult times, for example:
  • The feelings of becoming a full time Carer, following a sudden diagnosis of a life limiting illness.
  • The feelings of loss of hope/the life you expected
  • The expected/anticipated death of a loved one

 

Who is the course for?

  • Unpaid family Carers either living in County Durham or caring for someone living in County Durham
