As part of my legal work I quite often have to go into people’s homes when they’ve been taken into hospital or into a care home.
I nearly always find lists, shopping lists, to do lists, scripts for phone calls they need to make, things they need to remember.
Recently I was called by the local hospital as one of our clients had been admitted following a nasty fall. He was badly bruised and shaken up and was unable to tell them anything about himself. I asked him if he would like me to help him and he gave me his house keys.
