End-of-life care for individuals with dementia can be complicated and difficult for clinicians, families and the patient. This paper examines the current literature on end-of-life practices for individuals with dementia and discusses emerging trends to help inform clinicians about factors that influence end-of-life care for individuals with dementia. Research articles highlight nursing home care, hospice and palliative care, and decision-making as major themes influencing end-of-life care, and suggest recommendations for clinicians in improving practice in these areas.
