"8 Ways Grief Impacts Senior Health" - A Personal Story and Advice by Jackie Waters

Jackie Waters is wife, a mother of four boys and lives with her family on their three acre hobby farm in Oregon. In early 2017, her husband’s mom passed away. She had cancer, and spent her final days in hospice. For Jackie, watching her father-in-law deal with the loss was truly eye opening. Her mother-in-law not only did most of their cooking and cleaning, but managed their finances as well. Jackie and her husband have since been helping her father-in-law work through his grief while also helping him learn to live on his own. She has shown him how to cook some easy recipes, while her husband has taken over his father's finances; and they’ve tried to get additional help here and there to fill in the gaps. She has learned a lot about what she needs to be doing to help her own parents as they age, and felt compelled to share with others what she has learned.
