Very sad that your Dad's struggle has been so long and draining without much letup. Maybe if you can help him to consider that if he was pain free and no longer dealing with side effects of chemo, could he set goals of time with family and friends to do things he enjoys. I guess it is living in the now rather then just focusing on fighting for the future. To feel able to watch a favorite college or professional football or basketball game, to go out for a meal or order in from a favorite place, to simply enjoy watching movies or favorite tv shows, to go a scenic drive .... little things he might enjoy doing if but for the pain and side effects are what Hospice might help him to do. To spend time with old pals who might make an effort to come visit. Maybe you need to talk out your thoughts with a trusted advisor or counselor to then know how to help your Dad at this point in his journey with a bit of professional guidance. It is very hard to be a caregiver, and you are doing your best.
