“It is common for caregivers to have feelings of loss and grief as their life is changed by Alzheimer’s. You are entitled to these emotions and may start to experience them as soon as you learn of the diagnosis. Share your feelings and seek support as you go through this process.”
This article, Grief and Loss as Alzheimer’s Progresses from the Alzheimer’s Association, is a caregiver resource to help you identify and understand the stages of grief. It outlines some common experiences in the grieving process and practical ways to help cope.
“Everyone grieves differently and at their own pace. If your grief is so intense that your well-being is at risk, ask for help from your doctor or a professional counselor.”
