The loss, trauma, and resilience people experience when coping with “ambiguous loss” after an Alzheimer’s or dementia diagnosis will be the focus of this year’s Charles Evans Annual Lecture on the Art and Science of Caregiving, hosted by CaringKind, New York City’s leading expert on Alzheimer’s and dementia caregiving for more than three decades.
This candid discussion will feature Pauline Boss, PhD, widely recognized for her groundbreaking research on the theory of ambiguous loss and author of Ambiguous Loss: Learning to Live with Unresolved Grief and Loving Someone Who Has Dementia and family caregiver Karin Marder. Dr. Boss’s research and practice have revealed that losses without finality or resolution bear a particular and challenging burden. Jed A. Levine, Executive Vice President and Director of Programs & Services at CaringKind, will moderate the discussion.
The Charles Evans Annual Lecture on the Art and Science of Caregiving, established in 2013, is designed to recognize caregiving as an important social, political, policy and spiritual issue that merits thoughtful discussion and discourse.
CaringKind is formerly known as the Alzheimer’s Association, New York City Chapter.
