The toughest time in our lives is that when we come to know that our loved one is departing from this world. This is the time that is totally draining someone mentally and emotionally and leaving them blank as to what they would do. In this scenario, you can prepare yourself and you can help make your loved ones feel really good and happy in their last days and knowing as to what you can do to reduce their anxiety as the time comes near.
There might be some common signs and symptoms that you will come across when you will see a person die in which you will see the signs of irregular breathing, confusion, restlessness, loss of appetite, seeing people who have already died, and these can be very distressing for you, but you should know that these are the normal signs of the dying phase.
You can always be near to your loved ones and can help them reduce their anxiety when the news breaks out as to the time that one has to live. Usually the doctors predict that time that the person has and since no one can exactly predict that time, the doctors tell that the individual has some months, weeks or days that he or she is going to survive.
You must ask your loved one as to what are their wishes for the last phase of their life and you can have conversation with them. These conversations can be difficult and pretty uncomfortable, but this will provide your loved one to express themselves and any wishes that they have that they want fulfilled.
If your loved one wants to be moved to a nursing home facility, you must consult the doctor to see as to what you can do in terms of moving your loved one to the nursing home, and can check whether the Medicare and the Medicaid covers the cost of admission into those institutions. You can discuss this also with the social worker to see what options are there for you.
You can also seek religious or spiritual guidance for your loved one at the end of life time and they can find peace inside themselves and are more calm and are able to overcome their anxiousness.
