The development of end of life care standards for people with end stage dementia (2011)

The aim of this study was to contribute to improving quality of life for people with end stage dementia living in residential care settings by investigating the experiences of elderly spouses whose relatives had recently died with end-stage dementia in nursing homes in both Northern Ireland (NI) and the Republic of Ireland (RoI).

In addition, from the data collected, guidelines will be drafted for delivery of quality care in end stage dementia in long stay residential institutions. The drafted guidelines will then be circulated to a multi-disciplinary group of health service professionals across Ireland (four health service professionals in NI and four in RoI) and their views on the guidelines sought.
