End of Life Care for People with Dementia

This new report (October, 2009) from the Marie Curie Palliative Care Research Unit, University College London (MCPCRU) is based upon: discussions at meetings with health service professionals who have cared for a wide range of people with dementia; conversations with carers of people with dementia; and an analysis of the histories of care received by a small sample of people with dementia. 

The following themes are explored in the report:
  • pathway of care
  • impact of hospitalization
  • financial implications
  • advance care planning
  • impact on carers
  • skills and training
