Losing my mom

I lost my mom 5 weeks ago. I still feel like she’s coming back, I can’t get my head around it. I lived with her and my dad, I am my dad’s carer and we are both so lonely. I need to get my dad out of the house for something to do, but it’s so hard as I don’t drive and he has to go out in a wheelchair. Just don’t know what to do!


Hello @Natavfc,

I’m part of the Online Community team and I can see that you are new to the community - I’d like to thank you for bravely starting this thread and sharing how you are feeling. I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. Most community members have sadly experienced the death of a loved one and so will understand some of what you are going through.

I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I wanted to share a few Sue Ryder resources with you that might be helpful.

I really hope you find the community helpful and a good source of support and I also hope you feel you can access more support should you need it.

Thank you again for sharing – please keep reaching out and know that you are not alone.

Take care,


@Natavfc so sorry for your loss. My mum died 18 days ago. I can still feel her in the flat and I still think she’s coming back. I keep sending messages to her phone. It feels unreal. I can’t believe she’s gone.
Sorry to hear you are having so much trouble getting your dad out and about. Have you contacted any charities that could help with transport? How about day centre for a bit of company?
