“I really looked forward to the knock at the door, the dog barking and the laughter from the nurses as they came in. Having someone there at the end to support you pulls you back from absolute darkness”
The Hospice At Home Team made everything easier, for us both. They weren’t just there to look after Val, they were there for me too, they were interested in me as a person and having a laugh and a joke with someone at the worst time is really quite precious. They also took away physical tasks from me so I didn’t have to worry about doing things that didn’t come naturally to me. It was an opportunity for me to be me and because I wasn’t the carer I could be Val’s husband.
