I was at my wits end. I was scared and definitely not prepared for the advancement of my mother’s illness. In trepidation I picked up the phone and made the call to Eximius, I don’t remember what I said. The person on the other end of the phone talked calmly and seem to have a warm understanding.
I made an appointment with a care manager. As I put the phone down I felt relieved to know someone was coming to support me with the last few weeks of my mum’s life. The assessment was professionally set out in a care plan. The live in carer started the next day. A very smartly dressed young woman arrived. We sat and chatted and the carer explained what was going to happen as my mum’s condition deteriorated. The carer gave the medication and fed mum and ensured all her personal care was given until the end of her life. Thank you for looking after mum nothing was too much trouble. It was a tremendous responsibility and a lot of hard work but the carer gave her best – HC
