OK, I haven't lost a parent. However This seemed the be for loss forum that fits best. My uncle has terminal cancer. We are reaching the end with him, he is at home doing palliative care. They give him a month at most. My father is power of attorney, and has been with him through this whole journey. He is now living at my uncles house to provide care for him. I can see the stress my father is under, and i want to know ways i can support him more. But my daughter passed away quickly, I never had to sit by her for months.

So any of you go through a slow terminal illness. What was a comfort for you the caregiver those last days. What was a comfort to the ill person? What can I do?

Only real things you can do is talk to him and help him with anything you can. I know the most one wants is to vent. There isn't anyway you can force him but talking to him is the best way to give them some relief

My mom wouldn't ask for help and me being 16 (he passed the day before my 17th bday) I didnt even think to try and help.

PS. I love you siggy! I followed your jouney from when the twins were born and when Genevive grew her wings and to now. You have a wonderful and beautiful family!
