How to Look After Yourself While Grieving


Losing a loved one brings pain that is beyond words, and it may even reach a point where you feel hopeless about what the rest of your own life will be like without them by your side anymore. You will feel a mixture of emotions, and we at By Your Side Hospice are here to help you with your grief.

As a hospice services provider, we understand that life-altering experiences can feel overwhelming—a diagnosis of an illness, finding out that it is terminal, and losing someone important in your life to that life-limiting health condition. Despite it all, whatever life situation we may be in, there is always hope, and you should always remember to take care of yourself.

  • Acknowledge your feelings.

    Denial may be a part of grief, but it is unhealthy to hold on to it. You are allowed to express what you truly feel.

  • Find a way to express how you feel.

    Whether you talk to someone you trust or write it down in a journal, let your feelings out and never let them bottle up for your own health.

  • Take care of your physical health.

    Mental and physical health work hand-in-hand, which is why one can affect the other. Eat your meals, get some sleep, and exercise too.

We know that things are easier said than done, and you will need time as you cope with loss. That is why we offer ADLS, so we can help you stay safe and healthy.

Allow us to be of assistance in difficult times. We have nursing assistants in Texas ready to offer direct personal care and emotional support to both the patient and their family.

Contact us now for compassionate and warm hospice care in Houston, Texas. Your story is our priority.
