trying to make decissions in the last moments.

My grandmother has been battling cancer for quite some time, right now she is in her final moments. She is on oxygen and keeps taking it off, if we leave it off she asks for it back, like she panics. She is unresponsive, and is sleeping all day. My family and I are looking for support on what we can do to help make her more comfortable, and to make these final days go faster. We just don't want to see her suffer anymore. Any information and support will help me and my family, thank you.

using Hospice Care? They are wonderful. If you are, contact your nurse or social worker, if not, I would suggest contacting your local chapter.

They bring so much peace and comfort to all in times like this.

She is using hospice care. I will have to tell the rest of my family to contact the nurse. Thank you
