One of the myths about grief— perhaps the most pervasive myth—is that grief only follows a death. A reality that is rarely talked about, except among researchers and clinicians, is that grief can begin long before death arrives. It can start as soon as we become aware that death is a likelihood. Once death is on the horizon, even as a possibility, it is natural that we begin to grieve.

The goal of this booklet is to offer you a jumping-off point by outlining the concepts that we, the authors, feel are the most important for you to know as you navigate the complex and overwhelming world of caregiving and anticipatory grief.

Topics covered in, Anticipatory Grief, include…

  • General truths about grief
  • Understanding anticipatory grief
  • Grieving during a loved one’s illness
  • Caregiver burnout
  • Coping during a loved one’s illness
  • Coping after a death
