  •  End of Life Counseling (8+ / 0-)

    First, my sympathy to you, your father and your family in this difficult time.

    If you haven't already, please consider discussing end of life counseling with your father.  A counselor can help him to clarify his values about death and the dying process, and find greater meaning in the life he has lived so far.  A good counselor can also discuss the emotional side of pain management, and any 'unfinished business' Tom may have.  You mention that he is religious, many counselors are comfortable incorporating client religious beliefs into the conversation.

    The Arizona Counselors Association might be a good starting place.
