Our expert says:
It is always sustaining and valuable to know that you have people who love you, and always will love you. Check whether you have a local Hospice program which could help with some home nursing ( as, in some areas, can the Cancer Association ) and can also help with some support of the family.
As for conversations with some one that seriously ill, it is on the one hand important to be ready to talk about their mortaility IF and only if and when they wish to, without scaring them off from that possibility by looking so scared about it oneself ; and ALSO, to leave that topic aside if they wish to do so, and provide an opportunity for some calm chat about ordinary things, as it may be important for them to also be able to feel ordinary and to recall ordinary issues of life. Take the lead from them and what they need and want.
