#Death of an Adult Child) The Irish Connection Home Health Care Service!

#By Marian Deady. As I stood in the church watching one of our elderly clients enter the church attending her daughters funeral. I couldn’t help but feel so sorry and sad for this poor woman who is in her late eighties having to bury her adult child. Knowing in my heart this is not going to be easy on her. They say the greatest pain of all is for a mother to bury her child no matter what age. I found myself reflecting back to my own Mother and how she felt when she lost her oldest child “my sister” at the age of forty nine. It was a sad time for all involved especially my sisters own kids.  I was directly involved with my Mother and I watched her grieve on a daily basis and felt her pain. Her heart and spirit was truly broken and part of my Mother died the day my sister passed away. My Mother was never the same, that experience will stay with me for ever. The death of an adult child, regardless of cause or age is overwhelming to parents, who can never be fully prepared for their child to die before them. Parental grief is intense, long lasting and complex. The grief and healing process contain similar elements for all bereaved parents, but for those whose adult child has died, there are additional factors that may affect their grief. Others often assume that when the child who died was an adult, the parents pain is less than if the child was young. Parents whose adult child has died often find their grief discounted or disallowed. But from my experience in watching my own Mother I would say the greatest pain of all is for a Mother to bury her child no matter what age.
