Re: most caring state or best hospice
Navarone.......I am very sorry to hear about your mom. I don't know what her diagnosis is, but I do know that there is absolutely no reason she should have to spend her remaining days in pain. My mom is dying from extensive small cell lung cancer and she also has hospice services for the past ten months. They do have a medical director and my mother has been kept almost pain free. My first suggestion would be to speak with the social worker within hospice to let them know the problem. If you get no action there, I would certainly suggest
maybe finding a different hospice that does have a medical director and can actually prescribe the pain medications that are needed to keep your mom comfortable. That is what hospice is all about....keeping the pain under control. I hope you can get this worked out for your mom's sake. It is simply unacceptable to watch your mom be in so much pain when she doe'sn have to be.
Take care and keep in touch. My prayers are with you both.
