Pain management may be desirable and necessary to physically comfort your loved one at the end of life, but is only a small part of Superior’s comprehensive “Comfort Care” hospice program. We believe that everyone should have the right to die with dignity, and as comfortably as possible. For many families the last weeks and days of life are sacred and meaningful. Relief of pain at the end of life can help you and your loved one share more meaningful dialogue, express thoughts and feelings, reduce irritability, anger, and overall discomfort. There are many untrue myths about the use of morphine at the end of life, such as it’s use in “expediting the dying process”, but these myths are simply untrue. Please express your feelings and wishes to our medical team to address your concerns and ask questions about pain management and the various medications that are available for your loved one.
