My parents live next door and my mother is currently awaiting a stem cell transplant for leukaemia. Parents are both in their 70's. Been told Mum will need 24/7 care for three months after transplant. She will be in isolation at home for this period due to risk of infection being major. I'm a full time primary teacher and wonder if I can take this time off as a caregiver as my Dad won't be able to cope alone? I couldn't afford to do this without pay. Is this something schools would consider or are there any laws to support this request? Thank you.
