As a practicing nurse of over 35 years,  I have witnessed people struggle with pain, both emotionally, and physically.  In Hospice I've seen the fear of patient and family during this difficult transition.  The room is  often silent with the family sitting not knowing what to do or say.  Using touch can be a powerful addition to your loved one’s medical treatment for family and their loved one.
