Tell me more: Grief is complicated and everyone reacts differently to the experience. Loss in dementia is can look differently than many other diseases in that grief is present from the time of diagnosis and may continue up to 20 years. The caregiver in the end may grieve the loss of someone who is living but the essential part of them has since died. Memory, personality, intimacy and conversation are often no longer present in the later stages. How do you cope with this devastating loss? And now with COVID-19 at and/or in our door?
