How to Cope with Anticipatory Grief
Solano Care
August 14, 2023

Anticipatory grief is a concept that describes the intense sadness and anxiety that comes with knowing that a loved one is going to die.

This is different than normal mourning because it’s not about what has happened—it’s about what’s going to happen. Anticipatory grief can be particularly difficult for families who are dealing with chronic illnesses or terminal diseases like Alzheimer’s or cancer.

Because it’s not as common as normal mourning, many people struggle with how to deal with anticipatory grief when they’re going through it, and it can be hard to know where to turn for help.

Many people find that talking about their feelings and fears with family members or friends helps them cope better. But if you find yourself struggling more than you expected, consider seeking grief counseling from a professional counselor who specializes in grief recovery.

Solano Care offers grief counseling services to help families cope with the stress and emotions that come with anticipating the loss of a loved one.

Our hospice agency in Vallejo, California, has years of experience helping patients and their families prepare themselves for this difficult time in their lives. We have seen firsthand how effective our services can be in helping patients and their families get through this challenging time.

We can also provide compassionate care to patients with terminal illnesses in the comfort of their own homes or in a skilled nursing facility.

Whether it’s grief counseling or hospice care at an assisted living facility in California, you can count on us to help your family.
