Stuart Levin’s wife Francine was cared for on the St Gemma’s In-Patient Unit earlier this year. Stuart has since been supported by our bereavement service. Stuart tells his story:
“During the height of COVID-19 my wife started to go physically down hill as a cancer patient at home. Without the usual care of doctors, nurses, home help and all the usual help someone in my position gets, I cared for my wife 24/7 round the clock. I watched her slowly slipping away before my eyes and felt helpless.
“Only after she was admitted to St Gemma’s would I get my mental and physical relief. They cared brilliantly for my wife, but also me with love and help as her death grew closer.”
