Abstract

This session will provide a person-centered approach as dementia progresses from middle-stage to late-stage, when caregivers are presented with greater challenges in understanding needs as cognition declines and input from the patient is often nominal. Learn about pre-servicing the patient’s sense of self throughout the physiological, emotional and cognitive changes in late-stage dementia. In addition, this session will provide caregiver assessment tools for better understanding late-stage dementia, patients’ abilities, and how to access the Medicare hospice benefit in a timely manner so that the patient and family obtain caregiver relief and support throughout care.
