Grieving the many losses that long-term care staff experience is hard. It is hard to talk about, hard to listen to, and hard to live with. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the number of losses, reduced the time available to grieve and mourn, and added additional losses with the inability of families to support residents. Recognizing and mourning losses is an essential part of being human, keeping us connected to ourselves, our coworkers, and our families. Acknowledging and processing our individual and collective losses is important for our physical, mental, and spiritual health.

Care Providers of Minnesota is pleased to welcome Frank Bennett back for the second in his four-part online workshop series. In August’s online workshop, you will learn some techniques and ideas for you and your colleagues to share and practice to address the effects these losses are having on you, your residents, and your organization.

Learning objectives

  • Describe the effects of grief and loss in long-term care
  • Describe three types of loss experienced by long-term care staff
  • Identify three ways to acknowledge and mourn the loss in long-term care, individually, and communally
