Diseases and care in old age, palliative medicine

In old age, the gaze is increasingly directed back to the past: to the youth, one's own children, but also the upheavals and catastrophes that the 20th century did not spare any of today's older generation. And older people want nothing more than that the people who raised them and whose lives they have accompanied them from the start are by their side in the last years and months of their lives. Medical care cannot replace this personal care - but vice versa, relatives cannot do without professional support if dementia or another incurable disease has developed. This chapter provides all the information you need to understand this help and make optimal use of it.
