Mother’s Day memories: “She was treated with so much respect in her final days.”
“Proud of us all”
“Surrounded by her loved ones”
After a few months living with dementia, Rita was diagnosed with stomach cancer. Her doctors decided that treatment would be too traumatic, but referred her for palliative care to relieve the pain. Linda’s family cared for their mum at home, before she spent five months at the Marie Curie Hospice, Hampstead.
