Complicating factors throughout the bereavement process can frequently occur in people with learning disabilities.

Risk factors among caregiver Many nonprofessional caregivers—spouses, adult children, other relatives and friends—find taking care of an elder to be satisfying and enriching. But the responsibilities and demands of caregiving, which escalate as the elder’s condition deteriorates, can also be extremely stressful. The stress of elderly care can lead to mental and physical health problems that make caregivers burned out, impatient, and more susceptible to neglecting or lashing out at the elders in their care. Even caregivers in institutional settings can experience stress at levels that lead to elder abuse.
Healthcare professionals need an awareness of complicated grief and the possible signs that an individual is experiencing complicated grief (Shear et al., 2011). Strada (2013) explains that there are a number of risk factors associated with complicated grief and recommend that health care professionals should focus on identifying those at risk for developing complicated grief. Risk factors include: history of depression or psychiatric illness, childhood abuse or neglect, a sudden traumatic death, prolonged deaths and lack of support after the loss (Strada, 2013).

OCD interferes with the patients’ daily lives, work, academic progress and family life.
Living with AIDS can be an endless source of stress that is not easily handled alone. Accumulation of negative life events over several years of follow up predicts worse AIDS related outcomes. “Researchers have found that stress and negative emotions do correlate with a progression from HIV infection to AIDS and with the speed of decline in those infected (Bower & others, 1998; Kiecolt-Glaser & Glaser, 1995; Leserman & others, 1999).” Stress and negative emotions have also been linked to cancer’s rate of progression. Psychological stress has not been proved to produce cancer, but psychological stress that lasts for a long time may affect a person’s overall health and ability to fight with cancer. And stress might promote cancer indirectly by weakening the immune system's anti-tumor defense or by encouraging new tumor-feeding blood vessels to
