It didn’t matter whether they were just passing, you were acknowledged and you were treated like the person you are.’ • ‘They never make me feel like another old woman. They remember who I am, a mother, a grandmother, and that I bring another life with me’ palliative care education conference

  6. Undignified care • ‘He was, well, a sort of dignified man. Marvellous mind. And he had to go into hospital towards the end of his life and he did tell me, when I went in to see him once, and he told me that he couldn’t stand this business of ‘Come on love’ or them calling him ‘George’ . That just wasn’t his language, he was very dignified.’ • ‘The doctor and the nurse just chatted together while he put in the drip- it was awful. They just moved him as if he were an object. Not one word, not one smile, nothing’. • ‘They would not do any deliberate harm to her but they did a lot of negative harm in the way in which they treated her, because she was still able to make certain kinds of decisions for herself. But somehow even these were taken away from her’ palliative care education conference
