  • Comment on: 'Nurses need support to discuss end of life care'

    Tarnia Lefevre's comment 21 May, 2015 9:09 am

    As a nursing assistant that works with people diagnosed with dementia I tend to have this conversation a lot. It can be quite hard as you need to speak to someone early to ensure they can make choices whilst they still have capacity, but you don't want them to think you are telling them that their life is over when they have so more more time left to enjoy and live fully.

    I am very well supported in doing this and I hope my clients would say I approach this tactfully and sensitively whilst giving them a sense of fulfillment that they can make their own choices.

    It is an essential part of nursing, especially in dementia care and I look forward to more training in the future
