The Rosemary Foundation – Petersfield Case Study

Bob was an 82 year old man, widowed and living alone, supported by his son, daughter and a local family. Initially we provided just background support as he was still very independent and wishing to remain so for as long as possible.

When Bob experienced pain and confusion at night pain we stepped up the care to meet the patients ever changing needs. Close and frequent communication with his GP , Macmillan Midhurst team and the local Community nurses was invaluable & between us we were able to keep Bob at home as he wished .

The family said:

 

“The Rosemary Foundation are amazing people, they cared for our father in his home with regular visits until he died. They would also come out whenever necessary, they were fantastic. They also helped us as a family, I cannot thank them enough “
