Dr Jo Hockley of St Christopher's Hospice in London explains what "Namaste" care might offer those with advanced dementia.

She explains how touch, smell and music can provide stimulation to patients who have in many cases lost the ability to communicate, and states how she believes the care programme can bring dignity to both the end of life and to dying.
