This arts-based presentation presents research findings through paintings and artistic works that healthcare professionals created when they were asked “What it is like to care for persons living with dementia who are receiving end-of-life care?” Through focus groups and creative expressions, we explored healthcare professionals’ experiences of caring for persons living with dementia at the end-of-life and the values, beliefs and assumptions that support and/or act as a barrier to providing quality care. This research is intended to provoke and contribute to local and national end-of-life conversations with the intention of enhancing end-of-life care for persons and families living with dementia.
