My father recently attended Solihull hospital for a hernia operation.
My dad is suffering with the early stages of dementia.
My mum was worried and did not want to leave him on his own.
She explained this to the staff nurse who straight away said that they would accommodate her in a room close to the ward.
My mum was able to see my dad being wheeled off for his operation and saw him return to the ward.
While he was waiting to go down for his operation they let him stay in the room where they had put mum.
This ensured both of them were very relaxed and happy and the operation went well.
