The principles and practice of supportive care in dementia

Julian C. Hughes, Mari Lloyd-Williams, Greg Sachs

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter discusses the notion of supportive care in dementia. It explores the application of aggressive biomedical treatments as a component of supportive care, in the context of treatments arising in patients with typical late-onset dementias such as Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. It fleshes out the explanatory model of supportive care in specific ways, and then says something further about logistics.
