“He was a very selfless man, always asking about others. He had been excited about coming out of hospital, and had been shopping for mobility scooters as he had lost the use of his legs. He just wanted to get back in the community and be outside.
It was really touching to see how at the end all the staff from the other wards in hospital wanted to come and give him a last bit of care. He will be sadly missed and we all hope he is now at peace and rested. He thought a lot about everyone in Altrincham.”
