My mother in law is not the easiest person to help, as she often rebuffs help offered. However, thanks to Nic, Social Worker Kingston CMHT for Older People at Tolworth Hospital in Kingston on Thames, Surrey, her last weeks were made a great deal better than they would have been had he not been involved.
Nic not only supported her throughout the years he was her social worker, but he also assisted the family. He ensured that his client's views were 'heard', spent countless hours 'above the call of duty' to ensure she had a voice and was an active participant in the care arranged for her. Nic also set up network meetings as well as practical care for her and when she was admitted to hospital, where she later died, visited her there as his way of ensuring ongoing support. I would, therefore, like to thank Nic for his holistic approach to her care.
