Undertakers. #atozchallenge Care for the carers

Two days after her 73rd birthday my Mum took her final breath. She had Alzheimers and Motor neurone disease. For her final 3 months I was her main carer. A privilege I am grateful for and will cherish forever. This years #atozchallenge theme will focus on being a carer / care-giver.

Remember to care for the carers.  


I remember asking her Doctor. "What should I do when she dies?"

He said, 'Take your time. She won't need an ambulance. Just ring the undertakers...there will be no need to rush."

She died the death of a saint, they said. She got up to pray, then died in her sleep.

I don't remember who called the funeral home.
