Hospice enabled dementia care
Dementia care is an increasingly important strategic consideration for palliative and end of life care providers, including hospices.
However, there is a degree of uncertainty about what such care could and should encompass.
To this end we have produced guidance for hospices, which seeks to assure them they have much to offer people living with dementia and their families.
Through working in partnership with their local community and care providers, hospices can ensure that the best of hospice care is extended to everyone affected by a diagnosis of dementia within their local community.
In addition to this resource we have now established the ‘Dementia end of life care: Community of Practice in conjunction with Dementia UK.
