Home Instead helped our family through a very difficult time this summer. Reverend Derek was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in Summer 2011, and undertook a programme of Radiotherapy over the following winter. Unfortunately this was unsuccessful and in early June 2012, Derek received confirmation that the cancer had spread aggressively and was now incurable. Derek was the principal carer for his wife, who has early stage dementia. Their daughter, got in touch with Home Instead following a recommendation from Macmillan nurses, to provide some companionship for his wife, help around the home and to give Derek a break and a rest as he was increasingly housebound. This was a great source of support and comfort for her. As Derek grew progressively weaker, our daughter, and her brothers asked Home Instead to extend their care programme to provide round the clock care for Derek to enable Derek to remain at home during his last days, with care supplemented by Macmillan nurses, Marie Curie Cancer Care and the District Nurses. Derek died peacefully at home in August, aged 78, just a year after initially being diagnosed with Prostate Cancer, and only just 11 weeks after the cancer was confirmed as incurable. Home Instead provided 24 hour care during the last 10 days. Derek's son said: “The care, support and sensitivity of all the Home Instead carers was wonderful and they responded very quickly to a rapidly changing situation, with enormous compassion. This meant that the family could be there for both Mum and Dad during Dad's last few days. The care from everyone involved, whether Home Instead, Macmillan, Marie Curie, District Nurses, GPs and specialists was first rate, and Dad died peacefully, at home, with the people he loved. He was at peace with what lay ahead, and it was a real privilege to be with Dad at the end of his life. Dad had written a couple of books, and the carers were such a key part of Dad’s end of life care that we gave each of them a copy of his second book “Oceans of Life” so that they could see what Dad was like before his illness, as a thank you for their support and compassion. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving Service for Dad at Emmanuel Church Barnsley where around 300 family and friends gave thanks for Dad’s life - fittingly some of the Home Instead Carers were there. The collection at the Thanksgiving Service raised £1,500 split between the family’s chosen charities – Macmillan Nurses and the Barnsley Hospice.” Derek's wife is now very settled at Christian Care Home in Kexbrough, where she continues to receive wonderful care is a safe, warm and loving care home.
