This guide serves as a valuable resource for families and individuals responsible for making difficult health care decisions for persons with advanced dementia. Created by a team of leading geriatricians, palliative care specialists and researchers at the Institute for Aging Research and Beth Israel Medical Center in Boston, this book uses a question and answer format to guide decision-making around such issues as: the use of feeding tubes; treatment options for infections; hospitalizations; and the use of palliative care or hospice services. The impact of advanced dementia on caregivers and families is also discussed. A handy glossary of terms and a compendium of resources are included.
