Grief Counseling Program
Bereaved spouses have a 66 percent higher chance of dying in the three months after their partner’s death than when their other halves were living, according to Harvard researchers.
The loss of a spouse for the elderly can be a major blow to the will to live. A broken heart can lead to isolation, less care of oneself, and stress that can lead to heart attack.
A recent study, found in this article, looked at a variety of issues that correlate to grief so extreme that it can lead to a variety of health issues.
Grief counselors should take extra precaution when dealing with the elderly who lose a life long husband or wife. The loss and pain can be overcoming to the point it filters into other aspects of their life.
