    I attended an exactly and very informative series of talks at Bethlehem Palliative Care in Victoria. It helped no end to care for my Mother who was dying at the same time as my husband who silently suffered whilst I attended to a more demanding Mother. He luckily survived her by a year so was able to have my 10% attention and care during that time. Bethlehem was so supportive.

    Thank you for sharing your experience and that Bethlehem Palliative care provided invaluable support and information. It also sounds like it was a very difficult and demanding situation to have both your mother and your husband dying at the same time. If you feel able to and if you want to – The Victorian Inquiry into end of life issues would benefit from hearing what helped you during this difficult period and what other support you and your husband needed during the end of life care of your mother and your husband.

    Thank you again for sharing.
