HEALTH B9 Wednesday, February 7, 2018 NAVIGATING AGING By JUDITH GRAHAM Kaiser Health News , For years before her death at age 96, Nancy Lundebjerg's mother un- derwent a long, slow decline. Arthritis made it hard for Margaret Lundebjerg to get around. After two hip surgeries, she needed a walker when she was out and about. ' Incontinence was a source of dis- comfort, as was the need to rely on aides to help her perform daily chores. Little by little, Margaret became frail and isolated. "There was a sad- ness to seeing my mother's circle of life become diminished," said Nancy Lundebjerg, 58, CEO of the American Geriatrics Society, who wrote about her experiences in the organization's journal. The anguish accompanying ag- ing isn't openly discussed very of- ten, nor is its companion: grief. In- stead, these emotions are typically acknowledged only after a loved one's death, when the funeral and other formal rituals recognizing a person's passing happen. But frailty serious illness can involve significant losses over an extended period of time, giving rise to sadness and grief for years. The loss of independence may be marked by the need to use a walker or a wheelchair. The loss of a cher- ished role may dishearten an old- er woman who is no longer able to cook dinner for her extended fam- ily, gathered at the holidays. The loss of shared memories may be painful for adult children when their older father is diagnosed with dementia. And these are but a few examples. Looming over everything is the 10ss of the future that an older adult and his or her family imagined they might have, often accompanied by anxiety and dread. This pileup of complex emotions is known as "anticipatory loss." I DR.

"Be- cause protecting each other leads to feeling more alone and magnifies the feelings of loss." For a caregiver of someone with dementia, that might mean saying,"Sometimes you might see a look crossing my face and think that I'm disappointed. It's not that I'm upset with you. It's that I'm sad that there are things that happened in our past that we don't remember together." For someone who has suffered a stroke, it might mean encouraging them to open up about how hard it is to lose a measure of independence and be seen as someone who's dis- abled.
