Keeping an Alzheimer’s Patient Comfortable

Keeping the patient comfortableThe end of life requires special care, particularly because the dementia patient can no longer give you verbal or nonverbal feedback about how they feel. A person close to death may experience certain symptoms – pain, difficulty breathing, lack of interest in eating or drinking, or pressure sores (bedsores).
Remember that for these and any other issues around end-of-life care you can always turn to helping professionals who can provide you guidance and hands-on assistance in caring for the dying patient.
