The Aminoff Suffering Syndrome (ASS) defined by us may be the key criterion for enrolling end-stage dementia (ESD) patients for palliative and hospice treatment, and for the development of new alternative setting approaches, such as “Relief of Suffering Units” for end-stage and dying dementia patients.
Key words: End-stage dementia, Aminoff suffering syndrome, irreversible condition, dying.
