I cannot answer your questions but hospice should be about comfort and pain relief. Hopefully the hospice center is obtaining whatever may be helpful at this very sad time.

Hi, can you get one of the nurses to look at your meds? They told us not to wait or suffer side effects or symptoms without speaking up. Haldol didn't work at all and ativan caused panic attacks. Valium was the best med for her being settled and relaxed. Hope you get it sorted out soon. Best wishes xx

for food, jello, fruit cups and heinz cream of...soups worked well x

I'm so sorry.  Speak up the staff  where you are or if you are not feeling up to it, get someone else to.  They have sooo many options for pain and discomfort and panic but you need to ask them.

gentle hugs.

Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.
