How Do I Know You? Dementia at the End of Life
Caring for someone with dementia presents different challenges than caring for people with other health care issues. Dementia plays by its own rules. This booklet discusses the challenges in providing end of life care when dementia is the main diagnosis. It provides information to the family, friends, and professionals who are caring for and making end of life decisions on behalf of someone with dementia.
How Do I Know You? Dementia at the End of Life is often given to the family upon admission to the Palliative Care program to help them recognize signs of approaching death when dementia is present. It is also given to families when their loved one with dementia has stopped eating.
Like all of Barbara's booklets, How Do I Know You? is written in large print and the information is conveyed in a simple, direct yet gentle manner.
