Activity 12: Support for Amy’s family at end-of-life

It is now 3 years on and Amy has entered the advanced stage of early onset probable Alzheimer’s.  Dr Romano Sayer completed his training and is now a General Medical Practitioner who works at a nearby clinic. Romano is Amy’s primary physician and has been overseeing her medical care for the past 6 months. When it was obvious that Amy was not improving, a family meeting was held and with the assistance of an interpreter, Romano informed Mei and Erik that Amy’s health was declining and that she was entering the end stages of her life. 

Amy died this morning with Mei, Erik and Samantha by her bedside.
