Dementia and End of Life
Dementia is a progressive condition. Providing good quality person centred care when approaching the end of life is key, both for the individual and their family. Many practitioners lack the confidence in knowing how to support someone through this time.
The programme includes
- Principles of person centred holistic care at the end of life for people with dementia
- Recognising when a person with dementia is approaching the end of life
- Managing distressing symptoms
- Challenges and importance of Advance Care Planning and decision making
