End of life care for dementia patients

If you are living with dementia, it’s important to try and have conversations with your family and your care providers about your end of life care as early as possible.

If you are living with dementia, it’s important to try and have conversations with your family and your care providers about your end of life care as early as possible, while you can make decisions for yourself.

 

If this is not possible, or you have a family member with dementia who doesn’t feel ready to think about their end of life care, then we can support you when decisions need to be made on their behalf.

 

Coordinating end of life care for people with dementia

Bluebird Care South Tyneside care workers are your end of life champions. We have specialist experience in coordinating and delivering end of life care for people with dementia. We’ll help to develop an up-to-date care plan that includes your end of life choices and preferences and share this with all of those involved in your care.

Caring for you and your family

Someone in the later stages of dementia may live with their symptoms for many months, getting worse gradually. This can lead to uncertainty for you and your family. We’ll keep your family members updated as your condition changes, involving both them and you in any decisions.

 

Bluebird Care South Tyneside will help your family to understand each stage, recognise the changes, put the necessary plans in place, give you the right care, talk to them about your medication and ensure that you are not suffering.
