Dame Barbara Windsor, 82, was moved right into a full-time residential care dwelling earlier this month to get the skilled assist she wants after her husband Scott Mitchell admitted her situation had worsened in current weeks.
Now, Barbara’s good friend Christopher Biggins has revealed she has settled into her new environment and is “very comfortable and happy”.
He informed The Mirror: “It is such a difficult situation and Scott has behaved impeccably.
“I don’t know how he has done it. He deserves the highest accolade that anybody can give anybody, together with all carers.
“The decision I know wasn’t easy but I think he has made the right decision for everybody concerned. It is just tragic.
“But you have to look to the future and to Barbara’s comfort. I hear she is very comfortable and happy.”
The former EastEnders star’s husband mentioned he was “heartbroken” to make the choice following recommendation from a neurologist.
Earlier this week, Scott mentioned of his spouse’s transfer: “I feel I’m on an emotional rollercoaster.
“I walk around, trying to keep busy, then burst in to tears. It feels like a bereavement.”
“It’s always been my biggest fear, that one day I would have to take her somewhere and she’d be thinking, ‘Why would he do this to me?’ That fear has become a reality. It’s something I never wanted,” he added to The Sun on-line.
Barbara’s partner beforehand had round the clock carers staying of their shared home to take care of the actress.
