Life Story: Brenda’s Story

Brenda was in a general hospital.  She had issues with her memory and was physically frail.  Brenda knew she was very ill and that her life expectancy was short.  She explained to her Advocate that she wanted to return home to die.

Brenda and her Advocate built a very strong, trusting relationship.  Brenda requested that her advocate represent her views at a case review meeting where the decision would be made in relation to Brenda’s care and treatment. With the support of her advocate Brenda was able to return home with a care package in place.  She was overcome with joy and could not wait to go home. 

Brenda received her wish, living her last three months happily at home with her family and friends around her.  She was so grateful for the advocacy support she received.
