I’m sorry your Mum needs to start peritoneal dialysis. Lots of big changes for her ahead. She’ll be immuno compromised so please keep your distance.

She will be doing peritoneal dialysis. How can I keep my distance if I need to be there to help her? She’s worried about doing it at home herself because she’s scared she’ll do it wrong. I’m worried she’ll get an infection if she’s not being super hygienic and fiddling with the connection. I can’t be there all day with her but she needs help. I’ve done a training session with her and it looks easy enough but she’s panicking she’ll do it wrong.
