9780198510710: End of life in Care Homes: A Palliative Care Approach

In our society, the overwhelming majority of people who die are the elderly. They spend the majority of their final years at home, but usually die in hospitals or nursing homes surrounded by strangers. This book explores the possibilities for improving the care of older people dying in residential and nursing homes. It argues that there are aspects of palliative care that, given the right circumstances, are transferable to people dying in institutional settings.

"End of Life in Care Homes" describes what happens in nursing and residential homes when a resident is dying, how carers cope, and the practical, health and emotional problems that carers face on top of their day-to-day work. Based on research from a multi-professional group of well-known contributors, the book shoes how the situation can be improved.
Palliative care practitioners, general practitioners and Macmillan nurses who are involved in community nursing and nursing homes and other health care professionals who come into contact with dying patients in residential settings will find this book of great value. Geriatricians, policy makers, directors and administrators of residential and nursing homes should also find it a useful source of information.

Review:

Edited by respected experts, this book is intended for carers who have contact with dying people. It is a welcome addition to the palliative care literature. * Journal of Advanced Nursing, Vol 45, 2 * This book provides a clear picture of the benefits of introducing palliative care in residential and nursing homes, as well as the numerous steps that need to be taken to achieve it. It would be of value to any palliative care service that deals with residential care facilities and nursing homes, and should be required reading for anyone managing such a facility. * IAHPC Website * This book should be essential reading for all registered managers. I believe that, by giving much needed clarity to the subject, it could make a real difference to the care offered at the end of life. * Community Care * The book's greatest strengths are in raising awareness and stimulating debate rather than offering solutions . . . It will be valuable for all those involved with care-homes in either a practice or a policy capacity. * Ageing and Society, Vol 24, Issue 1 *

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.In our society, the overwhelming majority of people die in later life. They typically die slowly of chronic diseases, with multiple co-existing problems over long periods of time. They spend the majority of their final years at home, but many will die in hospitals or care homes. This book explores the possibilities for improving the care of older people dying in residential care and nursing homes. It argues that there are aspects of palliative care that, given the right circumstances, are transferable to dying people in settings that are not domestic or hospice based. End of Life in Care Homes describes what happens in nursing and residential care homes when a resident is dying, how carers cope, and the practical, health and emotional challenges that carers face on top of their day-to-day work. Based on detailed research from both the UK and US, the book shows how the situation can be improved. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780198510710
