Abstract

Background: This case study is a practical experience example from a nursing home setting. It will describe how a holistic approach to care, provided to a resident living with dementia at end of life, ensured a peaceful death. Aims: The importance of advance care planning and effective pain and symptom management in end-of-life care will be explored. The psychosocial issues experienced by the resident and their family and any ethical issues associated with the delivery of care will be addressed. The factors and challenges that need to be overcome in order to ensure effective pain and symptom management for the dying patient, particularly in a nursing home setting, are discussed. Finally, this article will make recommendations for future practice. Methods: This is a case study based on an author's experience while working in a nursing home setting. Findings: Challenges associated with end-of-life care have been identified and recommendations have been made.
