As hard as it is, be patient and understanding that this is part of the natural death and dying process. Sipping from a straw, lifting her head, or shifting in bed may take great effort for your loved one. Movement might slow to the point where you need to help your loved one make even the slightest shift in position.
Understand energy conservation. Your loved one will not be able to tolerate personal care for long periods of time so break these tasks up into smaller intervals. Arrange tasks into no longer than 15 minute increments.
Focus on keeping the person comfortable above the task. If your loved one is comfortable in the same shirt she wore yesterday perhaps changing her would cause more harm than good. Towards end of life most people begin to experience changes in breathing. Shortness of breath is often described as air hunger. Air hunger is a fearful desire to breathe better. The body is telling the heart and lungs that it needs more oxygen and this can produce fear and anxiety.
Another change a patient can experience is Cheyne-Strokes breathing which is loud breathing with a distinctive patter. Deep rapid inhalations that slowly decrease, followed by a pause of not breathing.
Understand that this is a natural part of the dying process and at this point your loved one is unaware of the changed breathing. Talk with your hospice nurse about options for medical patches to help dry up some secretions.
