Death and Dementia

One of the most common diagnoses we see for hospice care is dementia. The challenge of losing a loved one seems to be magnified when family is also the caregiver, and even more so when your loved one is passing from a disease like dementia.

At Elite, we train in our hospice care with materials from Barbara Karnes, RN, a long-time hospice nurse. Below is a video of a conversation with Barbara on YouTube discussing end of life care in persons with dementia.
