Caring in Lockdown

Just as they were adjusting to life in lockdown in April, Doris Blunden?s family encountered a further blow.

Just as they were adjusting to life in lockdown in April, Doris Blunden’s family encountered a further blow.

Doris had fallen asleep in her living room chair while watching television together with her sister, Ann Ross, and daughter, Sandra Flynn, at their home in Holland-on-Sea, when they noticed her breathing had changed. Immediately, Ann phoned 999 and under the guidance of the call handler, Sandra managed to gently lay her mum on the floor.

“The ambulance came very quickly,” remembers Sandra. “The young man asked if they should take her to hospital and we said no, she didn’t want to go to hospital. He said that was fine and they put her to bed. Then he said he would phone St Helena Hospice, which staggered us, but they were here in less than an hour and they were just wonderful.”
