I’ve just had the conversation in which you have to tell your mum that her husband is ‘no longer with us’ hoping she won’t ask, ‘Where is he?’ She asked. She kept asking.
I was not aware of this but six weeks is considered ‘End of Life Care’. Fair enough in most cases. So, this means that we have to move Mum from a unit that specialises in End of Life Care to a new place while I track down any confirmation that she has a secondary cancer from a system where the question, “Who has overall oversight of my mother’s care please?” is met with the answers, “Not us, she moved off our ward” or “I don’t know, I can try and find out.”
