Format: Paperback
There are many books available about programming in the early and middle stages of dementia. This is the first book I've read about programming in the later stages of dementia. The author discusses the concept of the "dementia hospice." She takes the approach that people in end-stage dementia should be treated as human beings with feelings and needs that can be addressed and met.
I especially appreciated the section about the supportive environment. The environment seems to be a critical piece of the dementia care puzzle.
I recommend this book to anyone who cares for those with dementia.

If you are caring for a family member with Alzheimer's, this book provides a peer reviewed foundation for understanding and preparing for their needs as they progress beyond Stage 2.

It explains what we know. It explains what we don't know. It provides case studies to clarify discussions. It offers guidance and tools for communication, nutrition, bathing, medical, and emotional support. It discusses end of life issues and provides a framework and vocabulary for discussing these things with the person's doctor and any caregivers that may be helping you.

For institutional readers, this book describes the special care unit as defined by the NIH for dementia patients in late stage. I have been advised that the VA Healthcare System has done a good job of implementing this model for the care of veterans with dementia. For caregivers it provides a comprehensive basis for assessing the capabilities of other skilled care facilities should placement become a need or consideration.

It's a definite help to me. Learning what is happening and more importantly, why, releases some of the anxiety that I have about this disease. I am able to understand a little more about what my husband is going through.
