    I am a director of nursing in a mid sized nursing home. This discussion is held many times with our families. It is extremely difficult for a family member to allow their loved one to “starve” . thank- you for such a good understanding of the other side of the feeding tube issue. It is NOT always in the resident’s best interest to put them through that experience. we will use this extra information in future discussions with families.

    Interesting informative read. Hopefully all caregivers and families are made aware of the kindness of Comfort Feeding…new to me.
