What’s best for Lily? End of life training for care home staff
The UCLPartners End of Life Care Team has created an innovative educational resource called What’s Best for Lily, designed specifically for care home staff, supporting them to deliver excellent care for residents (including those with dementia) at the end of life.
The UCLPartners End of Life Care Team has created an innovative educational resource called What’s Best for Lily, designed specifically for care home staff, supporting them to deliver excellent care for residents (including those with dementia) at the end of life:
Compassionate care of a resident with dementia and those important to the resident
Communication and documentation of wishes/recommendations on what to do should the resident deteriorate
The importance of using this documentation in a situation when the resident deteriorates, to avoid a hospital admission
Recognition that a resident with dementia is reaching the last days of life
Communication with the resident, those important to the resident, and other staff in the last days of life
Compassionate care in the last days of life
These resources include an educational film, a lesson planning guide and a facilitator pack.
Lesson planning guide
A lesson planning guide was created for use with the What’s Best for Lily? Films. This has been designed for ease of use by facilitators with differing levels of experience:
Experienced facilitators (especially with an End of Life Care background) should be able to briefly familiarise themselves with the content and commence teaching immediately
Less experienced facilitators (including care home staff, Lead Nurse or Manager) are well supported through tips, prompts and guidance
Use of the materials will depend on individual confidence, teaching experience and knowledge of end of life care
Making an individualised plan of care
Physical care at the end of life
