I am sorry to read about your Aunt’s condition, and the
difficulties your Uncle is having whilst trying to access overnight care for
Our Marie Curie nursing service provides end of life care to
people living with any terminal illness. Our services are commissioned by the
NHS, and vary from area to area. Your Aunt’s GP or district nurse will be able
to make a referral for our services, should it be appropriate to do so. You can
find more about our nursing services on our website: https://bit.ly/2AfWAUy
Another option may be for enquiries to be made with your
Aunt’s GP or social services to ascertain if there are any other night care
services available in the area where they live.
You may already be aware of Dementia UK Admiral Nurses who provide
specialist dementia support, and may be available in the area where your Aunt
lives. They can be contacted on 0800 888 6678, or you can find more information

Here at Marie Curie, our Freephone Support Line is also here
to offer a listening ear and emotional support, to anyone affected by a
terminal illness, you can reach us on Freephone 0800 090 2309.
