A 77 year old man suffering from Parkinson’s Disease was in hospital when his wife died. The family asked if it would be possible for someone to accompany him to the funeral and the wake. I met the patient on the ward and agreed to accompany him. The hospital provided a wheelchair for the day. The family provided a taxi from the hospital; we then went to his home and followed the hearse to the crematorium. Following the funeral, I left the patient with his family and returned to the hospital. I visited the patient the following day to see how he was. The family were very appreciative of the support.
