How Do I Know You? Dementia at the End of Life
by Barbara Karnes
Caring for someone with dementia presents different challenges than caring for people with other health care issues. It doesn’t “play by the rules” that signify approaching death from disease or old age. This booklet outlines the issues and progress that a person with dementia will probably follow.
The aim of this booklet is to provide information regarding approaching end of life to those people, family and significant others, who are caring and making decisions for someone with dementia. It would be given to the family upon admission to the Palliative Care program or to any family that is having to address the eating and not eating dilemma.
Like its companion booklets, Gone From My Sight, A Time To Live, The Eleventh Hour, and My Friend, I Care, How Do I Know You? is written in a manner that is simple and direct, yet gentle.
