Speaking of HealthThe nature of grief: Lessons in loss and lifeJune 09, 2017
Grief is the natural reaction to loss. Grief is both a universal and a personal experience. Individual experiences of grief vary and are influenced by the nature of the loss. Some examples of loss include the death of a loved one, the ending of an important relationship, job loss, loss through theft or the loss of independence through disability.
You might find yourself feeling numb and removed from daily life, unable to carry on with regular duties while saddled with your sense of loss. Realizing you can't control the process and preparing for varying stages of grief is the first step toward healing. Understanding why you're suffering can help, as can talking to others and trying to resolve issues that cause significant emotional pain, such as feeling guilty for a loved one's death.
Because everyone experiences grief in a unique way, our grief support services are designed to help meet the individual needs of you and your family.
