End of Life in Care Homes

A palliative care approach

Edited by Jeanne Samson Katz and Sheila M. Peace

  • Applying the principles and practice of palliative care to nursing and residential care homes is a unique concept
  • As more of us live longer, the way older people are cared for at the end of their lives needs to be addressed urgently, and this book is one of the first of its kind to show why the principles of palliative care should be available to us all
  • Case histories underpin the text and offer opportunities for ways forward
  • The editors and contributors are leading figures in palliative and residential care for older people
