Courage to Face Long Loss Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

  • Information


Being with a loved one through a degenerative illness or disease takes us on a journey that requires courage.

Rather than an immediate singular loss, we experience 'long loss' which includes multiple losses and changes over time.

Long loss requires us to face, endure, and adapt to what is happening.

Written from a personal perspective of supporting older parents with vascular dementia and episodic delirium, this book defines and applies courage to manage this form of loss.Included is the wisdom of older adults from Christchurch, Aotearoa, New Zealand, who took part in the author's doctoral study into courage.

Their life experiences in managing adversity, from coping with a bombing in World War II to surviving domestic violence, illustrate courage, grit and resilience - and how to put these into action.

Through the sharing of personal insights and knowledge, this book supports the application of inner strength and courage to help stay the course when experiencing the long loss of a loved one.
