Over the past month we have seen a considerable increase in calls to our free Marie Curie Information and Support phoneline. These are especially difficult and worrying times for people living with a terminal illness or receiving end of life care, and their families.
The free Marie Curie Support Line service is open 7 days a week: Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm, Saturday and Sunday 11am to 5pm. If you, or someone you know, is affected by a terminal illness and concerned about Coronavirus, the Marie Curie Support Line team are ready to help with practical information and emotional support when you need it. Call free 0800 090 2309. You can also find more information on our website: mariecurie.org.uk/coronavirus
The website answers frequently asked questions and common concerns such as ‘Should I visit someone with a terminal illness?’ or ‘Will your Nurses still visit my terminally ill relative?’.
