Is Death Painful?

Is dying painful? It’s a question many people have when considering their own death or the death of a loved one. Whether or not a patient will have pain at the time of death depends on a number of circumstances including their diagnosis and whether they are receiving proper pain management. Ensuring that patients do not have a painful death is one of the core tenets of Crossroads Hospice & Palliative Care.
