All the five articles are related to a disease called Dementia. Dementia needs a lot of care of people who suffers from it as it is related a lot to the emotions of the person. According to Moyle (2016), CMDC (capabilities model of Dementia care) is one of the models which can prove effective in this disease of dementia as compared to the general LDC practice (Moyle, Venturato, Cooke, & Murfield, 2016). However, CMDC models have some of the limitations when it comes to Dementia. At the same time, as per Agar et al. (2017), when the two arm parallel cluster randomized controlled trial was done, it was found that the family case conferencing facilitates the palliative approach to care (Agar, Luckett, Luscombe, Phillips, & Beattie, 2017). The further trails of case conferencing must consider the results and the procedures with respect to the decision making and the planning of illness events which are anticipated. As per Powers (2008), he stated that the idea and the concept of palliative care are very poorly understood (Powers, 2008). Also this is relatable to the thoughts of Agar with the points mentioned above. While as per Rosemond (2017), people with dementia and their family members might face some of the issues in decision making due to the lack of trust they have with the NH staff (Rosemond, Hanson, & Zimmerman, 2017). This lack is because the members who actually trusted the NH staff explained an assertive suicidal experience and fewer requirements for aims of care discussions. They also said that the family members were ignored by the staff. While Steen (2013) says that if the terminal nature of the dementia is known by the staff members, this might improve the comfort of the patient at the end of life (Steen, 2013). All the articles are related in a way that all are talking about the care that dementia people required and with the help of the perfect staff, these people can feel comforted until they live.
