why was he not treated with AZ drugs late stages or even offered we all know that answerEric Hollingworth died earlier this week. He was 81-years-old and in a care home.
He was diagnosed with Alzheimer's four years ago and was being treated with anti-psychotic drugs.
So do I Craig , because when you say Alternatives to medication are few are far between , or are any other type of medication . that what wind me me up in this country as they won't give out medication for late stages of AZ , but they give out those cheap drugs left, right Centre .lets just hope they provide some viable alternatives for a change rather that just causing yet more sensation on the subject.
I'm not sure this will be covered. But it would help with a balanced view, we will have to wait and see how they handle it.why was he not treated with AZ drugs late stages or even offered we all know that answer
Thanks for that, Craig. The ex headteacher at the school where I was Chair of Governors, emailed me about the programme. The daughter, Cheryl, is a friend of hers.BTW - if you miss it the BBC normally keep recordings of Panorama at:
Hi SylviaI have read the notice from the AS and am confused. There seems to be referral to sedating drugs in the same breath as anti-psychotics, and there doesn`t seem to be any differential between care at home, and care in Homes.
I really can't see these examples taking over from powerful and effective medication, sorry.Different approaches to medication should be tried as part of a care plan, for example aromatherapy, multi-sensory stimulation, music therapy or massage.
Hey Katie, not at all harsh, you are right. When I said the experiment was 'a bit suspect', I was a little harsh. I apologise; particularly as that comment was made before even seeing the programmeSorry, Craig, if I appear somewhat harsh
