The baby boom generation is the fastest growing demographic. With their aging comes an increase in the loss of loved ones. Essential to the mental well-being of this population who are at risk for depression and mortality is bereavement support with the overall goal of reducing bereavement-related depression and grief. Geriatric bereavement related-depression is often overlooked by health care professionals or if it is recognized prescribed medication has been a preferred remedy instead of other options such as group therapy. The proposed Archstone Foundation grant will support an English and Spanish speaking bereavement support group for adults age 65 and over at Barbara J. Riley Senior Community Center, Downey, California. A 6-week psycho-educational course will provide attendees with depression and grief reduction techniques utilizing Reminiscence, Cognitive Behavioral and Cognitive Grief Therapy. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for successful completion of this project.
