It absolutely wasn’t before the last hours of Sue McKeough’s life that her spouse Alan Bevan managed to find her end-of-life care.
Sue had fallen in to a coma months prior, but Mr Bevan, 68, felt he had been the only person responsible for their spouse’s care.
„as much as that time, there have been no experts here. It seemed for her,“ he said that it was just me caring.
„we clearly knew that she ended up being gravely sick, but I becamen’t completely yes what the prognosis was.“
Sue was clinically determined to have Alzheimer’s disease at 49 and passed away simply 5 years later on in a medical house.
„we had thought that in a first-world country like Australia, there is palliative care solutions available,“ Mr Bevan said.
