Beech Unit (Worcester): “I will never forget your kindness!” A retired nurse speaks about her Mum and her care

I met Anita at a church meeting last week. She recounted the moving story of her Mum’s passing in hospital and the good treatment she had at Worcestershire Royal.We know how important it is to show dignity and sensitivity at such times. Not just another death for us but someone we have nursed and cared for, along with the rest of the family. People will never forget such kindness, and today I recieved this letter from Anita:

“Dear David,

I spoke to you about my Mum who died (aged 95) last year in Beech Unit at Worcester Hospital. My Mum was an ex-nurse and a great character and was mentaly arlert right up unti her death. She had panned all the funeral and knew just what she wanted and said her goodbyes to us all. A truly remarkable lady.

As a retired nurse and midwife myself I wanted to nurse her at home for the last weeks of her life, but that wasn’t possible and she was admitted to hopsital for treamtment.

I cannot praise all the staff highly enough. My mum was treated with respect and dignity by everyone; nothing was too much trouble and I will never forget the kindness shown, not just to my Mum but to myself and other members of the family at a very sad and difficult time.

Keep up the good work. I for one will always be praising Worcestershire Hospital.

With Kind Regards,

Mrs. Anita Wilson”
