As a case manager in a Human Services organization, you have been working with 70-year-old Brenda for several years. Since her life partner of 40+ years passed away 8 months ago, you have noticed a decline in her physical and mental well-being.

How would you explain to Brenda the effects grief has had on her development?

What types of resources might you encourage her to seek out to preserve her overall health?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

There are 5 accepted stages of grief: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. It sounds like Brenda is in Stage 4, Depression. Brenda needs help in dealing with this depression to get to stage 5, Acceptance. Several organizations are available to help Brenda to get over the loss of her husband, including Grief.com. A better option might be for Brenda to contact her local hospital. Hospitals often offer a verity of classes and support groups for people in this type of situation.
