Adopting a palliative approach in caring for people with dementia involves promoting the best quality of life possible throughout the person’s journey with dementia. Towards the end of life people with dementia may have specific needs which can be easily overlooked, but remain a critical element in ensuring a good death. Responding sensitively to the end of life needs of people with dementia promotes individuals’ preferences, dignity and control.
This one day learning programme highlights the important contribution professional staff can make to end of life care for people with dementia. It explores ways in which staff can develop knowledge and gain confidence, ensuring that support and care offered to people with dementia is based upon the latest research evidence and carried out in conjunction with a person-centred approach.
