During bereavement, concentrating and retaining information becomes difficult. This is caused by a preoccupation of loss. Reading and other tasks requiring concentration, may take longer than usual. Mistakes and errors may also become more prevalent. As time passes, mistakes lessen and the ability to concentrate and retain information returns.
