Patients' wishes in their last days

Patient (M), in his eighties, suffers from prostate cancer with metastasis to the bones, which made him bed ridden. Hospice team visited him to provide him with care and services. He mentioned that he lost a lot of weight because all his teeth had fallen out during the course of treatment, so he became unable to eat food and lives on solutions and fluids. His wish is to eat different types of food and fruits, but he cannot.

Hospice Egypt contacted Dr. Muhammad Najeh, the dentist, who immediately went to the patient’s home to take the size of the dentures and delivered it to the patient.
