Near the end of life, the focus of medical care is usually on maintaining your quality of life, and making sure that pain and other symptoms are well controlled. This section describes the common symptoms experienced towards the end of life and how they can be managed.
Symptoms at the end of life

Ask them any questions you have if you would like to have a good understanding of what to expect.
