My mum was diagnosed with lung cancer 2 years ago and last week we found out that it has spread to her brain and were told that she only has months, possibly weeks left. She's been in a hospice for the past week to stabilise her and get her medication right. The doctors have said that she can now either come home or go to a specialist palliative care unit. My dad and I would love her to come home, but I'm really worried that we wouldn't be able to cope (my dad's nearly 80 and isn't in the best of health). The doctors said that a care package would be put in place, and I'm just wondering if anyone has experience of this and how did it work?
