End of life care in dementia is a significant policy concern, with dementia now the leading cause of death in the UK. We know that as many as a third of people aged 65 and over will die with dementia (Brayne et al., 2006), while the number of people living with dementia is expected to more than double by 2050 (Prince et al., 2014). In care homes, around 70 per cent of residents are thought to have dementia (Prince et al., 2014).
