Hi, yesterday lunchtime I recieved a phone call from my Mothers' care home.
She is 97 and in good health.
I was asked to give them the name and telephone number of the Funeral Director we would be using for my Mother, what we wanted done with her clothes and possessions, and was she to have do not resusitate on her notes.
I asked if there was a serious health problem which I had not been informed about, and told not at all she was quite healthy for her age.
I told them to keep all her posessions for the family to collect and that I would contact them with other details when I had spoken to family.
Ok I am an only child and live abroad, but there are other family members who are very involved with my Mother, one of my sons visits every weekend and cousins every week.
Has anyone else been asked to give such details in advance?
I can fly to Scotland twice a day even get a bus or a train so it is not as if I am living somewhere which would take a lot of time to get there.
