“Managing Grief in a Post-Covid World” – RCFE Workshop with Dr. Hoy

May 16, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Managing Grief in a Post-Covid World

In this post-COVID world, there is significant concern about how the pandemic has had a long-term effect on people’s experience with bereavement. The increased number of deaths among the elderly especially in facilities, coupled with the inability to say effective goodbyes and the lack of formal ceremony has certainly complicated grief for residents, their families, and our staffs. Though grief does not proceed according to any set of “stages,” there are helpful ways to understand our experiences with loss. In this workshop, we’ll discover how bereavement becomes integrated into life through the natural coping processes humans undergo. Moreover, we’ll discover how to help ourselves and others when “getting stuck” in grief.

Objectives. At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to. . .

  • Describe the common myths of grief common in contemporary society
  • Demonstrate a practical understanding of the normal bereavement process and how it has often become complicated by factors related to the COVID-19 pandemic and our responses to it
  • Utilize a framework for emotional support of residents and staff as they face their own losses
