We all know that our time here is limited. Death will always be a part of life. But its existence and certainty are emphasized when one is diagnosed with a life-limiting illness.
As we provide palliative care in Los Angeles County, California, we witness the anxiety and stress that a diagnosis can have not just on the patient but on the family as well. How can anxiety at the end of life be managed?
- Letting It Out
Providing hospice in Burbank, California, has shown us the importance of letting this anxiety out. We have different ways to cope with our anxiety. But one of the best things to express it is by talking about them to the right people.
Since families may experience this anxiety as a collective, patients can talk to them about what they feel. This may not be an easy topic to discuss, but it can lift the weight off their chest.
Patients can also choose to work with professionals. Through individual or group counseling, they can have an avenue to express this anxiety better. Counseling sessions can also provide insight into how to address this anxiety healthily.
- Spend Time with Loved Ones
Your time with your loved ones may be limited, which is why it will always be beneficial to spend time with them as much as you can. Their presence can relieve all the stress and anxiety this situation may bring.
Here at Compassionate Hospice Care, Inc, we are more than willing to help you cope with the anxiety this situation brings.
