This chapter focuses on Namaste Care, a programme designed to improve the quality of life for residents living in institutional settings. It gives ‘voice’ to residents who can no longer speak and helps to ensure that the last stage of life is peaceful and comfortable in the presence of others. Residents have different values, wants, needs, and desires. Namaste Care is a 7-day-a-week ‘enhanced’ nursing programme. Activities of daily living (ADLs) are offered as ‘meaningful activities’.
