    Grief and Older People - Speaking from experience DVD cover image

    Personal stories of living with illness.Whilst the process of aging may reflect a time of great achievement, satisfaction and excitement for many, it is not uncommon for some older people to feel isolated and concerned about some aspects of their lives - past, present and future. For some, experiences of family isolation, social withdrawal, decline in health, role and status, death of partner, family members and friends creates a great sense of loss and grief. As people age, anticipated, and more often multiple losses go unrecognised and unacknowledged.Speaking from Experience' increases understanding of the grief and loss experienced by older people and raises awareness of the unique issues and needs of older people in our community.
