Dementia at End of Life:
What All Post-Acute Providers Should Know

Webinar On-Demand

Caring for patients with dementia at end of life presents a different set of challenges than caring for patients with other health care issues. Patients with dementia don’t follow the same process at end of life as other patients, and this can create a great deal of anxiety and uncertainty. The result can have a devastating impact on patients’ families and loved ones. 

One in three American seniors dies with Alzheimer’s disease or some other form of dementia, so this is an issue that all professionals in home health, home care, and hospice will face. Your agency's entire team needs to understand the caregiving challenge that is dementia at end of life.  

Join us for an important and timely webinar — Dementia at End of Life: What All Post-Acute Providers Should Know — presented by renowned end of life educator and International Humanitarian Woman of the Year 2015 Barbara Karnes, RN
