This book introduces palliative care programs and protocols for the treatment of people with advanced dementia. It proposes an interdisciplinary team working together to meet the highest standards of palliative care. The book describes the goals and objectives of successful advanced dementia care programs, and presents guidelines for reaching those goals. The editors emphasize the importance of holistic care, demonstrating how palliative care must address the physiological, psychological, social, and spiritual well-being of both the patient and the patient's family. Nursing and health professional staff of skilled nursing facilities, dementia units, assisted living facilities, hospice units, and residential care homes will find this book to be an indispensable resource. The book will also be essential reading for care managers responsible for care of advanced dementia patients on an outpatient basis. Case managers and social workers who manage Medicare patients will additionally find this book to be a helpful resource.
