    Hi, my mother lives almost 200 miles away from me & is now under palliative care after a long battle with bowel cancer.  We don't know how long she has left, is currently suffering with incontinence & pain so cannot sit down & can only either lie down or stand up.  I haven't been able to see her now for almost 12 months & I'm wondering if I'm able to go & stay with her for a while to support them?  She lives with my father and they have both now had their 1st vaccination.  Both my parents are in their 80's & are struggling.

    I have worked from home since March 2020 although my partner has been going to work since September 2020, it is just myself, my partner & my youngest son in the house (who splits his time between my house & his fathers house).

    Hi Hevgough,


    I am sorry to read about your mum and the impact that the pandemic has had on you being able to see her. You don't say which if the four nations you live in, but we have some information about travelling in the pandemic which you can read here: http://https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/coronavirus/government-rules-coronavirus


    We also have some information that you may want to think about here: http://https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/coronavirus/visiting-dying


    However, we are aware of the following:


    Can I travel between England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales?

    The government says you should only travel across borders or between areas that have different protection levels when necessary. But you can travel:

    • to provide care for someone
    • to visit someone who is dying in a hospice, hospital or care home
    • to go to a funeral if you're invited.

    While you’re in another country or area you must follow the rules in that country or area. 

    I hope this helps. If you would like to chat about it please call us on Freephone 0800 090 2309.

    Best Wishes

    Brigette - Marie Curie Support Line Officer
