Please note that images of deceased Indigenous people may be contained within these video clips.

Whilst the process of aging may reflect a time of great achievement, satisfaction and excitement for many, it is not uncommon for some older people to feel isolated and concerned about some aspects of their lives - past, present and future. For some, experiences of family isolation, social withdrawal, decline in health, role and status, death of partner, family members and friends creates a great sense of loss and grief.

These 'Speaking from Experience' video clips offer first-hand accounts from older people who have experienced grief. It was produced in partnership with the National Association of Loss and Grief.
