What to Say to Someone with a Terminal Illness

As much as we want to encourage our loved ones to strive and fight, sometimes it is our job to encourage peace and rest. In these darkest nights of the soul, “Feel better soon.” won’t be appropriate.

In the seasons we all least look forward to, we want to shine as much light into their life as possible. If you need help adjusting to the situation and finding the words to say:

  • Make it clear that you are there, and that you support and love them
  • “We’re here for you, and we’re right here with you during this tough time.”
  • “You know that all of us are your biggest fans, and you’re not alone. “
  • Ask how they are doing today.
  • “You might not know it, but you’ve made my day countless times. The way you crack a joke can break me out of the worst mood. Thank you for being amazing.”
  • “It is such a happiness when good people get together—and they always do.” – Jane Austen
  • Ask them if there is anything they need, and remind them that you are here to help.
  • Sometimes, it’s a relief to have a distraction. Ask them about memories and experiences, take games to play, or music to listen to.
  • Don’t be afraid of silence. Your presence can be more comforting than any words.

What Not to Say to a Sick Person

Sometimes we think we know what to say. We’ve heard it in a movie or think it sounds good. But it might be less helpful than it seems.

When someone is sick, their defenses are down and energies for self-censoring are more depleted. Stay on your loved one’s good side and avoid any accidental well-intentioned discouragements, such as:

  • “Let me know the results.”
  • “You don’t look sick.”
  • “It’s all in your head.”
  • “Don’t worry.”
  • “I know just how you feel.”
  • Don’t make assumptions about their recovery
  • Be aware of their beliefs
  • Don’t offer medical advice

How to Help Someone Who Is NOT Feeling Better

  • Run their errands
  • Send a gift
  • Visit when you can
