Grieving Dementia

Grieving Dementia

Someone once told me, think of Dementia as a bicycle wheel. There are many spokes on that wheel, some of them are, Alzheimer’s disease, Lewie body disease, neurovascular disease, etc.  Dementia is the broad term to describe a disease that causes memory loss over time, usually encompassing changes in behaviors and ability.

Do I Need a Grief Group or Something?

Do I Need a Grief Group or Something?

I used to think that after the death of a loved one, the best way to cope was to talk about it, cry a little, share memories, maybe laugh a little and just keep going through life. This may be my way of coping after a death, it is not everyone’s way, nor should it be.  As Chaplain providing grief support with Bakken-Young Funeral & Cremation Services, I have learned that each person has their own way and their own path, and though there may be similar characteristics, the resources and tools we use to help us through grief, can and will be unique for each of us, and we are all fairly resilient and will find a way to live with that death, moving forward in life.

Living with the Death of a Parent

Living with the Death of a Parent

The death of a parent can hit us hard even as adult children. It doesn’t matter if you have been a caregiver or your parent lived alone and independently. When we lose our parents, for the most part, we lose the figures who had been the most influential in our lives. When parents die, their status in our lives might not be equal to that of an earlier period, however, they were such extraordinarily significant people in our lives (either positively or negatively), and as such, that makes their death special. The meaning of our relationship with our parents in our lives at the time of death determines the importance of this loss in our lives.
