My father died Christmas Eve. I'm worried about my mum who had been married 50 years and is deep in shock. She has also been his carer for the past few years and so is shell shocked by the whole horrific journey. Does anyone from the hospital come and see if she is OK at any point? I am with her obviously every day all day but I am just wondering if there is any consideration of the impact the death of an alzheimers patient has on their husband/wife.
