How are you and your partner doing today?
Are there any special things that your partner likes or liked doing? Perhaps something simple like a board game (I personally am partial to Scrabble and Triominoes!) or a book to read to him? Perhaps there's something on locally at the library or a museum that might interest him?
We also have a telephone support group for carer's that we run nationally, I think might be of interest to you. Shoot an email over to firstname.lastname@example.org, just say Kate referred you - we all sit near each other here in the office. Sometimes talking to other carers can be the best thing, as they have either been or are in a similar situation to your own.
