Publisher's Summary

Each year, more than 500,000 people are diagnosed with dementia in the US. As stunning as that figure is, countless family members and caregivers are also affected by each diagnosis. Families are faced with the need to make vital end-of-life decisions about medical treatment, legal and financial matters, and living situations for those who no longer can; no one is prepared for this process. And many caregivers grapple with sadness, confusion, guilt, anger, and physical and mental exhaustion as dementia enters its final stage.  

In Making Tough Decisions About End-of-Life Care in Dementia, Dr. Anne Kenny, a skilled palliative care physician, describes how to navigate the difficult journey of late-stage dementia with sensitivity, compassion, and common sense. Combining her personal experience caring for a mother with dementia with her medical expertise in both dementia and end-of-life care, Dr. Kenny helps the listener prepare for a family member's death while managing their own emotional health.

Great book

Lots of up to date information on dementia. The case studies help to personalize what is happening. Everyone’s experience is different but there are good and bad days. It’s good to know others have these feelings and emotions.

gave me great insight at end of life

I am a new hospice nurse. this open my eyes to resources and to situations that I did not know existed. I've listened to it twice and have learned many things both times. I have a better understanding of the process
