Improvements in health care in the 21st century mean people are living longer, but with the paradox that chronic illness is increasingly prevalent.
Inevitably, people living with dementia will die, but their needs at the end of life are not well known. This book describes what might be achieved if the values and best practice of both dementia care and palliative care are brought together, to achieve quality end of life care for this specific group of patients. It explores what is known about the experience of dying with dementia, using a narrative approach, and develops a model that draws together a 'person-centered' approach to care. The book examines the possibiities and the challenges faced when trying to improve quality of life for people with dementia, and presents examples of good practice from across the world.
