Title Working with Older Adults Experiencing Grief
Summary For older adults experiencing vision loss, grief is part of the adjustment process and is one of the most prevalent mental health concerns. As we age, we can experience many losses; people we love, abilities, activities we enjoyed, and the former perception of ourselves. All these losses need to be processed in a healthy way to prevent impairment. If grief is not processed in a healthy way it can lead to mental health conditions such as substance abuse, depression or anxiety disorders. This fact sheet covers strategies for providers to utilize while working with older adults experiencing grief.
