When you’re six years old and your Daddy dies, your whole world falls apart.
“There was just no respite, no time to comprehend what was happening really” said Caroline. “When we first went to the hospice I was very nervous, but it was just an amazing place. We had a guest suite so Dean’s Mum stayed there the whole seven weeks and I stayed most nights and for all of the last three weeks too and we were able to give him all his personal care.”
