Although older adults are more susceptible to loss, there are more support groups aimed towards helping young widowed persons than those ages 65 and over (Cox, 2010). The purpose of this project was to develop a curriculum for an eight-week grief support class for New Hope Grief Support Community in Long Beach, California. This curriculum will allow older adults who have lost a spouse or partner to learn how to cope with their loss while also learning to rely on new relationships as their main point of support. The curriculum is based on James William Worden's four tasks of mourning and New Hope's grief education format.
