My Mother in law has recently found out she has sclc. My concern is her home, its mouldy damp and has 20 years of dust build up. She is currently in hospital with pneumonia. I fear the dust etc will cause her to become ill again. Do we treat this the same way we would treat an asthmatic? I also fear her care when she comes home from hospital. Can anyone give me some advice?
