My Mum was diagnosed with a terminal brain cancer. She died at the rehabilitation hospital after spending two months in hospital. We were allowed one visit in her final two months of life. Terrible.
This is in stark contrast to the situation of my wonderful friends, Bob and Diane Mason, who were supported by the incredible Campden Home Nursing.
“The right to die at home and the difference it can make is huge.
During the pandemic this was more acute than ever, as hospital visits as you know, were exceedingly difficult to impossible.
My Mum was diagnosed with a terminal brain cancer. She died at the rehabilitation hospital after spending two months in hospital. We had been allowed just one visit allowed in her final two months of life. Terrible.
Bob was diagnosed with terminal cancer and following a referral from their GP, Campden Home Nursing stepped up. It enabled them to make best use of their time together. Critically it meant Bob could stay at home.
Bob died on Father’s Day 21st June 2020 with his family around him. Without the support of Campden Home Nursing, he would have been in hospital and completely alone. This matters and helped immensely.
Diane is forever grateful for the kindness shown to Bob, herself and their family priceless. Diane has been fundraising for them. I wish to support Diane and help them continue their amazing work supporting people from Stratford to Shipston, Moreton to Pershore and Tewkesbury.
