Description:
In this ethically approved hermeneutic phenomenological study conducted in Ireland, mothers’ experiences in caring for children with complex needs were explored. The sample comprised mothers (n ¼ 17) at home caring for children with complex needs. Data were analysed from multiple interviews (n ¼ 48) and diary records (n ¼ 11). Care is provided in a going between world of travel. Providing care when travelling is challenging, and all journeys require careful preparation and pre-emptive care. Few unnecessary journeys are undertaken. Unnecessary travelling could be avoided by careful and coordinated service planning.
