ES Alzheimer’s Disease
People dying with Alzheimer’s go through the same bodily processes as people who are dying from other conditions. It’s just a bit more difficult to provide care because your loved one is unable to offer much in terms of feedback or communication.
Guidelines for hospice admission criteria with ES Alzheimer’s are:
- functional assessment staging scale of 7 and below
- patient unable to self perform their functions of daily living
- has had multiple medical conditions like upper urinary tract infections…
- inability to swallow…
Faith and hope hospice professionals are the experts in relief at the end of life. They understand the needs of the dying and are there to support family members as well. You don’t have to go through this alone.
