Dying in lockdown

Tina Wallace has written a detailed and very personal account of her own day to day experiences, and those of her mother, living and finally dying in a care home, unable to have the normal interactions with friends and family. “The ties that bind are strong and so important. Losing them can literally be a matter of life and death, which many stories in the UK media attest to. Many families are now left broken hearted, sad and depleted by the manner of the deaths this virus has imposed. This story is about one such journey; the pain is over for my mum, but continuing for us as we find ways to grieve apart.”
