The health care team can offer guidance about how medical comfort care can also be provided at home. In some cases, the dying person might experience depression or anxiety or feel like a burden to others. Reassurance, talking about feelings, and, at times, medications can bring relief. Music at low volume and soft lighting are reported to improve mood, help with relaxation, and lessen pain. Comfort care can also mean avoiding bothersome procedures like blood tests, repeated blood pressure measurements, injections, or taking difficult-to-swallow pills.
