overview of literature on care of people with advanced dementia, we reflected upon direct nonparticipant observations of care in urban areas of Northern Ireland and Japan. Whilst we identified a common purpose: to address the complex needs of people living with dementia, there were differences in the approach to care. Broadly, dementia care in UK tends towards person centred
care with a strong interest in Advance Care Planning as part of a palliative care
approach. In Japan, we found less evidence of early stage palliative care and more of family based decision making to inform care of older people. In both countries, dementia care varies regionally, being more available in some areas than others. International knowledge exchange and further comparative studies will help to improve care for people with advanced dementia, everywhere.
