How do we provide comfort to our seniors in pain?

It has been 5 weeks that I and other caregivers are taking care of a 92 year old with Dementia, leg and knee pain and depression. After 5 weeks, she grimaces less and complain less of pain as we provide comforting words and massages to her. She likes the hugs and comforting words as she lives alone , feeling like abandoned for many years. 

We use all kinds of massage oil from coconut oil with fresh ginger and turmeric powder to Desitin, as she is bed-ridden and can be prone to bed sores. Sunlight is very important to her to remove her blues and move her from bed to wheelchair with exercise. It warms her body and she loves to be in the sun.
