Rosemary is a 72-year-old, Jamaican lady who has lived in the United Kingdom since early childhood. She married in the UK and raised her family here. Her husband passed away prematurely in an industrial accident. She has since been fiercely independent, retiring at 60 from her insurance work and then travelling the world with friends. She ceased travelling at 70 to help her daughter Winsome with childcare. Four months ago, after a persistently bad cough that wouldn’t go away, Rosemary visited her doctor. After many tests, it was discovered that she had lung cancer, which had spread to her bones. She was put into the care of the palliative team, where you first met Rosemary. Due to the rapid decline in her health, Rosemary has had to move in with Winsome and her family. Rosemary disclosed to you that she doesn’t want to be alive anymore, and she is going to ask Winsome for assistance in dying. She feels that she is a burden to her daughter who is now struggling for childcare as well as looking after her. She also disclosed that Winsome would be better off if she wasn’t around because there is ‘a big insurance payout coming her way’ in the event of her death.
