"I was with him every day and was blown away by their compassion, resilience and kindness.
"I know he felt so cared for and safe and I will never forget Ella, Jemima, Gemma, Mandz, Clare, Trish, Irish Helen, Scottish Helen, Andrea and so many, many more for whom it was clear it was not just a job. Real life wonder women.
"Dorothy House is a charity so if any of you can, please donate to them. I really cannot imagine how we would have managed without them."
