Before I brought my Husband home from hospital they gave me details of an organisation of Companions - an organisation similar to Macmillan - & arranged for a lovely lady to visit us. she, his G.P. the ADMR organiser & an English Carer came to see us. The Companions arrange for someone to sleep-in to give you a break, sit with the patient to enable you to go out to shop, keep appointments or just have a break. Sadly we had to return to hospital the next day as the pain relief was insufficient at home & he needed intravenous morphine. He died peacefully, 3 days later. Cancer Support France is much needed & we asked for donations in his memory to go to them. I have recieved another 100€s which I will forward to them.
