I have hospice, but would like to have some experienced caregivers let me know how they dealt with this? I've read that it takes a person about two weeks to die once she has stopped eating???? that seems like a very long time...and god the suffering???? How little or how much of a dose can the nurses administer to the dying person. I DON'T WANT MY MOTHER TO SUFFER ANY MORE THAN SHE HAS!!! THANKS A HEAD OF TIME FOR YOUR RESPONSES!!
