Abstract

This article highlights some of the key themes and challenges in the empirical, policy and clinical literature on end-of-life care for people with dementia. It is intended to promote critical discussion in this increasingly important area of policy and practice. The authors argue that end-of-life care for people with dementia should recognise the needs of the person and those of their family carers and staff involved.

People with dementia being cared for in acute settings benefit from a relationship-centred approach to their end-of-life care, argue Tony Ryan and colleagues
