Drawing on data from qualitative and quantitative studies, this chapter examines the grief and loss experiences among dementia caregivers in order to offer new directions for supportive care. Of special note will be the differences between the grief experiences and coping mechanisms displayed by adult-child versus spouse caregivers. The variation in their coping mechanisms has implications for the types of support that will help to alleviate grief and loss among caregivers, thereby helping the person with dementia as well.
