The role of palliative care for dementia patients

‘You matter, your care matters. Palliative care can make a difference.’

For National Palliative Care Week, we look at how palliative care can offer not just a better end of life experience for the patient, but too their family.

In this story you’ll hear from Imelda whose husband passed away six months ago after a long battle with dementia, and what developing a palliative care meant to her and her husband.
