Dementia and Staff Grief

The Alzheimer Society of Canada developed a resource for healthcare providers in 2014 intended to address close attachments long-term care staff form with the clients they care for and the grief associated with their death or declining health.

As described by the Alzheimer Society, “This resource is meant to help you and your organization gain a better understanding of the multiple losses experienced by staff caring for people with dementia across the continuum of care, and how staff members can be effectively supported in managing their loss and grief when clients are dying and after their deaths, transitioning out of a program or to another level of care.”
