Julian C. Hughes, RICE Professor of Old Age Psychiatry, University of Bristol
This splendid book contains practical information - clinical, psychological, social, legal, social, spiritual and ethical - which is combined with wisdom and background understanding so that a thoroughly holistic picture emerges. It also encourages thought about training in the complex field of end of life care for people living with dementia.
Dr Elizabeth Sampson, Reader, Marie Curie Palliative Care Research Department, University College London
This book offers concise and practical guidance on caring for people with dementia who are reaching the end of their lives, promoting dignity and the needs of lay (family and friend) and professional carers. It offers clear learning outcomes, case studies and examples of good practice to bring this knowledge into every day care.
Jane Seymour, Professor of Palliative and End of Life Care, School of Nursing and Midwifery, University of Sheffield
The care of people with advanced dementia is an increasingly important area of end-of-life care. This book provides a practical and well referenced overview of the key issues, using accessible case studies to illustrate key points. I look forward to using it in palliative care education and as an excellent source for reference.

There are lots of books being published about dementia right now and most do add value to the body of literature available but not all are as readable and accessible as the new offering from the University of Bradford's School of Dementia Studies. [...] Murna Downs and her team should be commended for this book [...].
