My beautiful Mum

I lost my beautiful Mum on the 1st December, and am finding it very hard to cope. Mum had dementia the last few years, and then developed dysphasia and became bedridden. The one thing we are grateful for is the fact she never forgot her family, and even up until the end was laughing at our toilet humour. I just can’t imagine her not being here anymore, as she has been a constant in my life for 50 years. It’s going to be so hard to have Christmas without her this year. :smiling_face_with_tear::innocent::heart:


Hello @Nessy73 ,

I’m so sorry to hear about your mum. Most community members have sadly experienced the death of a loved one and so will understand some of what you are going through.

I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I wanted to share a few Sue Ryder resources with you that might be helpful.

I really hope you find the community helpful and a good source of support and I also hope you feel you can access more support should you need it.
