The national clinical programme for palliative care is pleased to present the second edition of the palliative care Glossary of Terms (the palliative care glossary). This document was developed as part of a process to promote clarity and consistency in the way in which we speak about palliative care and the services that are provided to people with palliative care needs. It was developed in consultation with stakeholder advisory groups to the programme.
Grief is our response to loss. It is the normal, natural and inevitable response to loss, and it can affect every part of our life, including our thoughts, behaviours, beliefs, feelings, physical health and our relationships with others. With the support of family and friends, many people adapt to loss well and may not experience intense and persistent feelings; however, for some, the experience of grief can be overwhelming and further support may be helpful.
The DemTalk project was facilitated by the Alzheimer’s Society in the UK and involved tapping into the expertise and real-life experiences of experts, family members and people living with dementia.
Most young people will have been bereaved of someone close to them (a parent, sibling, grandparent, friend, teacher) by the time they are 16. Many will cope well with their loss, but all will need the support of those around them.
