About the Event

Coping with Loss in Older Adult Communities Presented by Mary Curlew, LICSW, Jewish Family & Children's Service Sponsored by Jewish Family & Children’s Service

Originally held on May 12, 2020

Loss can be experienced in many ways as we grow older. The most obvious loss is a death of a family member or friend. There are other kinds of losses, however, such as the loss of connection to our family or a decrease in level of mobility and independence once enjoyed, that are not often acknowledged or appreciated for their impact on older adult communities. This workshop will explore loss and grief and how it affects individuals physically, emotionally, behaviorally and spiritually through this broader lens. It will also help participants learn ways to support the grieving process in their communities, especially in light of the traumatic losses communities have faced following the spread of COVID 19.
