Abstract

This article reports on research rooted in a work based education project and the theme of loss was chosen by the participating care staff who felt it was central to their work with dependent older people. They coined the phrase ‘living bereavement’ meaning the complex responses and grief reactions of those experiencing and bearing witness to the multiple losses endured in continuing care environments
