Abstract

This brief paper will introduce a new theoretical framework or model which may be useful for putting a structure around the theme of ageing and its accompanying grief and loss. It is especially appropriate in the context of counselling families living with dementia, including those individuals with a diagnosis of alzheimers disease.

The paper describes the origin of the Spanish expressions of the wall of tears’ andhouse of tears’ and involves an historical narrative of the first author as context to the framework.
