Dementia and end of life care: implications for people with sensory loss – Thomas Pocklington Trust – April 2012

“Dementia and serious sensory loss are often triggers for admission to a care home, and as more people are surviving into older age, the incidence of dual sensory loss is growing.

Carers and staff supporting people with dual sensory loss combined with dementia need to be confident they can meet these complex needs, and end of life care represents one of their major challenges. Good environmental design can help support best practice in this area.

These are some of the issues that were discussed at a joint event between Pocklington, the Social Care Institute for Excellence and Arup.”
