What I liked
My wife aged 98 fell and broke her hip. Wonford operated and after a fortnight she was transferred to Exmouth Hospital. Her sight was very limited and she suffered from both illusions and delusions; these had been aggravated by the operation. She was a month in Exmouth, getting stronger for nearly three weeks when there was a change in her optimistic attitude and she finally died ten days later. My reason for writing is that my son and I visited daily and for all that time the nurses of all ranks were considerate and helpful in every way; not only to my wife but to other elderly women in the ward. This enormously eased the difficulties of her last few weeks.
