This chapter discusses the notion of supportive care in dementia. It explores the application of aggressive biomedical treatments as a component of supportive care, in the context of treatments arising in patients with typical late-onset dementias such as Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. It fleshes out the explanatory model of supportive care in specific ways, and then says something further about logistics.

Keywords:   dementia, biomedical treatments, supportive care
