What Every Senior in Victoria, BC Needs to Know About Coping with Grief

Senior Grief | Experiencing the loss of loved ones is one of the most difficult aspects of aging. Therefore, elderly adults, who have lost many friends and family members may dread the holiday season as they miss their spouse or companions. Seniors may suffer through a season which is supposedly filled with joy.

Festive family gatherings may generate additional sadness. Traditions of shopping, decorating, or addressing holiday cards can increase feelings of sad and lonely. 

Six Senior Grief Tips to Consider:

Tip #1. Difficult events:

First, learn which family events may be the most difficult for the aging adult. This way, you can connect with his or her family or friends in advance, and ask them to be supportive.

Tip #2. Time to heal:

Allow brokenhearted older adults ample healing time without pressure to attend events if they’re still not ready.

Tip #3. Emotional Preparation:

Let your loved one know their sad feelings, grief, or loneliness are normal and may be worsened during the holidays. Remind them it can be helpful to consider this in advance because this may help them feel prepared and strong enough to endure the season without as much difficulty.

Tip #4. Healthy Diet & Exercise:

Keep in mind that grieving adults still need to eat healthy foods and exercise regularly. It helps!

Tip #5. New Traditions:

Create a new tradition, rather than repeating the old ones. Commemorate a lost loved one by volunteering with a non-profit organization or donating to a charity.

Tip #6. Being There:

Let your grieving loved one know that he or she can ask for help. Remind them of friends, family, neighbours, and others in the community who may have been forgotten but could offer excellent support.
