Over 25% of older adults and almost 70% of persons with advanced dementia live out their final days in nursing homes. While the number of hospice patients living in nursing homes has increased dramatically over the past decade, other comprehensive palliative care models have not been widely adopted or tested in nursing homes. Palliative care nurses play critical roles in collaborating with nursing home staff to enhance end-of-life care and outcomes for older persons.
