My Mother was taken into East Surrey hospital on the 31st March suffering a severe stroke. She was 90 years old. She was attended to quickly with kindness and we were kept very well informed.
She was moved to Chaldon (stroke) Ward. She never regained her speech or movement in her left side. She eventually suffered from an internal bleed and passed away.
The last two weeks of her life, my mother was cared for with such care, compassion, respect, professionalism and good humour that I was totally humbled.
I stayed with her in her room for the last week of her life. The Doctors, nurses and entire team looked after my needs and supported and our whole family beyond anything we could have reasonably expected.
I cannot thank the team enough for being there in every respect when my mother's life ended.
