The path of the caregiver is not an easy one. There's a helpful webinar on the topic of Grief and Caregiver Stress which can help. It explores the topic of sudden death with the emotional turmoil and loss that accompanies it, but the main focus is on the long goodbyes following years of coping with issues like
dementia, complex medical illness, and cancer, that carry with them
unique forms of grief and caregiver burden. This
webinar is presented by Dr. Carilyn Ellis, a psychology
fellow at the Boise VA Medical Center, specializing in oncology,
palliative care and primary care mental health integration. She
completed her doctorate in clinical psychology at George Fox University
in Newberg, OR. She has much to offer the caregiver in need of understanding, solace, and comfort.
