My husband suffers from Parkinson’s disease. He fell at 4am on morning and was unable to get back up. I couldn’t help him.
I phoned the ambulance but no one had visited by 5am so I phoned again. The paramedics eventually arrived at 8am – it meant that my husband was on the floor for four hours, which was really distressing for both of us.
When the paramedics did arrive, they did apologise about the wait.
