The E-Series: Anticipatory Grief

In this episode, Trent Cockerham, CEO of Hospice of the Piedmont, is joined by Marcia Vanard, Bereavement Counselor at Hospice of the Piedmont. Together, Trent and Marcia discuss the emotions and adjustments that surround caring for a loved one as their disease progresses and care needs increase. In addition, they explore the benefits of being in tune with one’s grief, both before and after the loss, and the importance of incorporating self-care and self-compassion as coping strategies.
