My Mum was in a home for the last couple of years - her choice. But at the end, when she felt she had had enough and wanted to join my Dad (she believed in heaven) she refused to eat and drink and no one could make her, so that is how she died, but it was her choice and peaceful at the end. Her lovely brother, who was 84, sat up all that night with her. She was 87.
