"Feel totally let down"

About: End of life care

(as a relative),

What sums it up is I feel totally let down.

I was told help was at the other end of the phone and when I most needed it, it just didn't happen. I don't blame anyone for my wife's death, it is just all I was told didn't happen. This made me feel that I let my wife down in the last few hours of her life.
