caregiver grief

When you are caring for someone who is near death, it can be both challenging and rewarding at the same time. That is why it is important for you to care for yourself. If self-care is not a priority, you may feel unable to care for your loved one or provide emotional support to friends and family members.
After all, you are also experiencing grief on top of the responsibility of being a caregiver. Try to remember that you are entitled to your feelings.
You are not expected to do this alone, so it is important to ask for support.
After the death of your loved one, it is common to feel guilty and experience self-doubt. However, you most likely did everything that you could for your loved one.
While it was important for you to care for your loved ones’ physical needs when they were still alive, it was more important for you to be present for them. That is why I say that you did everything that you could. Lastly, take care of your own body, and get some rest. After all, you’ve just gone through a major trauma, and your body and mind need to begin the healing process.
