Grief and the Older Adult

Older adults experience grief much the same as younger and middle-aged adults. However, due to their age and life experience, many factors impact their grief reaction.

Older adults often experience several losses within a short period of time. They may have a dwindling roster of family and friends and may be grieving any number of losses at the same time. In addition, older adults who experience spousal death may also lose their financial security, their best friend, other social contacts and supports.
