Loss Grief and Dying with Dementia.

Loss Grief and Dying with Dementia.

Life & Death Matters Post

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.  In a webinar  on Nov 28, 2012 at 12:00PM – 1:30PM EST (offered by CDRAKE),  Janice Robinson and I will share our experiences collaboratively and individually in their development of an education program for residential care staff to support people dying with dementia. We 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.

*In the coming months we are thrilled to offer a few education opportunities addressing the needs of people dying with dementia, or the needs of their caregivers.

Stay tuned for some education glimpses from the online course “Loss Grief and Dying with Dementia” starting in October with Deb Ribeyre.
