Caregiving and Grief in Alzheimer's and Dementia: Suggested Resources

Grief is the constant yet hidden companion of Alzheimer's disease and other related dementias.  ~ Kenneth J. Doka

A hospice colleague writes: We are preparing a program on issues of caring for those with dementia (and their caregivers) who are bereaved, as well as caring for the bereaved whose loved ones had dementia. If you find any relevant material on these issues, I would appreciate anything you can share.

My response: Below are listed dozens of resources that can inform and help. Bear in mind, however, that these are offered only as guides, since each person with dementia is unique, and individual circumstances will vary. As always, if readers know of any items you'd like to see added to the list, please feel free to leave a comment, below.
