We have very frail, very elderly neighbours who ask us for help with this and that on a regular basis. Should add that we’re happy to do it. They have a son who visits regularly but he’s a good half hour drive away.
The other day I saw an ambulance parked close to their house and given our neighbours’ precarious states of health, I assumed it was for them - went and asked the paramedics (still inside) whether they’d come for house number X. I did explain that we were long term friends who helped them very regularly.
They said no.
But I just had a call from the wife (asking for help with something unrelated) who told me that her husband had recently been taken to hospital - it must have been that day - and was still there.
Why wouldn’t the paramedics tell me? I feel awful now that I wasn't aware. Maybe it’s a confidentiality issue, in which case I can understand it, but I still feel bad about it.
