My father is in hospice care and has developed excessive saliva and coughs a lot especially when he eats (his food is pureed and we put Thick-It in drinks). The hospice nurse has given him medication to reduce the amount of saliva. The medication helped initially but now he is back to coughing; it sounds like bronchitis to me. However, he has no fever, his lungs are clear, and his blood pressure is good. What else can be done to make him more comfortable? Thank you.
