On April the 25th 2013, Sandra Yawson suffered a grade 4 subarachnoid intracranial haemorrhage (stroke). From this day on, life would never be the same again. She was wheelchair bound, required hoisting by 2 people and her medical needs were very vast.
After moving between St George's hospital, East Surrey Hospital, Crawley Hospital and Kerwin Court in Slinfold, Sandra came into the care of Queen Alexandra Hospital Home in Worthing on the 09/09/14 .
Owing to the fact Sandra's family and friends were all still in Crawley, they depended on the staff there to care for her every need. Sandra was much loved by all her family and friends and often on the good days, the staff would talk through with Sandra about her life and go through her pictures with her that she had around her room. She enjoyed being taken down to Worthing seafront or out around the grounds of the hospital home.
On Sunday the 4th of September, the day before her 60th birthday Sandra was rushed to hospital where the family was informed that Sandra was so very unwell and had no chance of survival. As you can imagine, this was devastating news and the family were in total shock. QAHH were kind enough to take Sandra back so she could spend her final days in comfort, in familiar surroundings and with her loved ones by her side. During this time, the family stayed by her side day and night and the staff went above and beyond the call of duty to provide food, drinks and so many shoulders to cry on. We would like to thank them all so much for the care they provided Sandra and us through this difficult time.
Please make your donations to QAHH so they can continue to provide the excellent care for so many other residents.
