My much-loved mother died yesterday, after five days in the hospital. Throughout, and especially on the critical care ward, she and we were treated with great kindness and consideration - but never patronised. Staff explained sensitively but accurately what the position was, and their compassion, care and professionalism made our overwhelming sadness and sense of loss easier to bear.
