I’m sorry to read about your mum being in the last stage of her illness and how you are struggling with this.
You've shared that your mum is in a bad way, here on our Support Line we aren’t medically trained so if you are concerned about her current needs and condition, we would suggest for you to make contact with her out of hours GP or district nurse if mum has access to one.
Watching a loved one deteriorate can be especially difficult for a variety of reasons, accessing support for yourself can be comforting to know that you don’t have to go through this alone.
If you need to talk, our Support Line is here for a listening ear. We are open Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm and on a Saturday 11am to 5pm. You can reach us by calling freephone 0800 090 2309 or via our Web chat function here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/marie-curie-support-line
