Adult Children Losing Their Parents

Coping with the loss of our parents is a unique stage of life. As a society
we do not know how to grieve well or support those we care about
after loss. This is especially true of adult “orphans”, or adults who
have experienced the loss of parents, whether at the same time or at
different time intervals. The death of our parents can be surprisingly
challenging and mystifying. Adult survivors are at risk for experiencing
disenfranchised grief and feel isolated in their bereavement process.
They may encounter well-meaning phrases like: ‘they had a nice, long
life’, or ‘aren’t you relieved now that you don’t have to worry about your
aging parents’. Whether you have cared for an aging parent or have lived
a separate life from a surviving parent, this significant loss can come with
surprising intense feelings that most of us are not prepared for. Grief can
be quite a journey, and connecting with those that are going through
the same type of loss is often the most helpful and healing step to take.
Join us for a presentation which will include coping strategies and a
discussion to share our own experiences with parental loss.
