"My mum, Ros Sherwin, was a district nurse. In May 2020, when she was 61, she went for a scan at Glenfield Hospital, and out of the blue she was told she had stage 4 lung cancer. It was a terrible shock."
"Considering she couldn't talk anymore, the nurses were still able to have a chat with her about her wishes, her family, her childhood and her favourite hobby which was gardening. It didn't matter that it took her a while to write down what she wanted to say, everyone gave her the time to be able to do this."
“It was like walking into a hotel and the care and the warmth was incredible. I immediately felt so comfortable and so did Baz, they took such good care of us.”
When Ian died, I felt relieved that he was at peace. It had been a long, difficult road. After his death I continued to have complementary therapy which I loved, as well as some counselling. The support from LOROS went way beyond what I expected. It really kept me going.
I remember the day Graeme went into LOROS and called me. That was the first time in what felt like ages, that he sounded happy
I came into LOROS three weeks ago and I feel safe here. If things get better, then great but if they don’t, I know LOROS is the right place to be.
If you can use the word enjoy about end of life care, then he enjoyed it. I can't praise LOROS enough.
“I used to have such a responsible job - I worked 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. Then suddenly I had so much time on my hands. I found it really difficult.”
