Alzheimer's disease and related dementias are by their diagnosis terminal illnesses. Over the past few years dementia care and hospice palliative care have turned their lens to quality care for people with late stage dementia. Integrating a palliative approach in dementia care can make the world of difference to the experience of those living with dementia and their caregivers. Kath and Janice will share their experiences collaboratively and individually in their development of an education program for residential care staff to support people dying with dementia. They will speak briefly about this education initiative , the evidence uncovered during its inception and the learnings generated through on-going practice and research. Participants will be provided with best practice strategies to support people living-dying with dementia and their family members.
