The journeys of grief are unique to all of us. All losses to death are meaningful whether it be a family member, friend, housemate, staff, teacher or a pet. Some journeys of loss we can prepare for and some we can’t. We all need opportunities to grieve including people with developmental disabilities.
In this two part series we will share ideas for future planning & personalized bereavement expressions that acknowledges a person’s loss and offers them a chance to participate and recover from loss in their own unique ways.

Join our conversation as “seasoned” siblings Barbara and Deb talk about their years of disability-related experiences when it comes to honoring the death of loved ones- people with developmental disabilities. They will share some considerations that may come into play when preparing for a funeral such as family, cultural and spiritual influences. Both agree that it is a good thing to plan ahead on what that might look like and to be open to the possibility of a memorial that truly reflects who that person was.
