Because dementia does change brains and abilities, it is vital to address the real sense of loss and grief that individuals do experience. The purpose of acknowledging the perception of loss is to help to affirm with is still possible and what is still retained. Since this condition is progressive until death, it will require revisiting the topic over and over as changes continue. This session will focus on supportive empathy and validation when someone is expressing grief and loss.
