Product Details

Editorial Reviews

Providing care for Alzheimer’s patients in the last stage of the disease is care intensive, demanding, and emotionally difficulty. Nurses and nursing assistants will both benefit from this unique program in which Dr. Peter Rabins addresses the special needs and care required by Alzheimer’s patients in this final period of their life.

Filmed on an Alzheimer’s unit in long-term care, this DVD presents actual patients documenting the physical, functional, and cognitive decline associated with late stage dementia.  As nursing staff  present patients to Dr. Rabins, they describe changing and increasing care needs with emphasis on providing comfort and companionship during these final days. Their efforts include: recognizing each patient as an individual; preventing skin breakdown and ulcers; recognizing signs of pain; and supporting families. Issues addressed include: care at the end of life; respecting resident’s advance directives and families’ directives concerning artificial feeding and medical interventions; and hospice options.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.
