It really does - he finds it very frustrating. I spoke to him last night and he is interested in the bowls if I can find an indoor one locally. So that's a start.
He used to work in a legal department of a university before he retired doing contracts. He couldn't keep up physically or mentally with that - hence the medical retirement. He is still interested in that sort of thing, but he just can't process it now and his memory fails him. But he did really lik...
Good ideas :) Mum's visit was lovely thanks for asking :) We all just chilled and had a lovely dinner together etc. Lots of hugs and chatting. Was great to see her and my Dad. I get the impression my Dad is more worried than my Mum about it all really! She has her surgery tomorrow and so has been a ...
Thanks for all your replies :) I had a quick look and there is a bowls club not far from us - not sure if they have an indoor green but can find out :) good suggestion :) As for archery - he would love that, but he has ataxia down his left side (lack of coordination) from the brain tumour surgery so...
Hi, I'm trying to find ways for my husband to socialise more. He has a support worker now which helps with his social isolation and I am planning on taking him to a Headway (charity that deals with people with brain injury) day centre this week to try and meet people who understand his problems.

The interests my husband had were either physical (bowling and walking), highly cerebral (law stuff and reading complex literature) or stuff he can't do anymore because of meds (CAMRA membership - ale etc); he isn't in a state to do any of t...
Also,I hope your son feels better soon!
So far - touch wood - I haven't got any bugs. Just exhausted from stress and running about and taking my hubby to hospital appointments first thing 3 days in a row this week! You don't get them for weeks/months then they all come at once :) I'm trying to keep myself healthy at the moment to try and ...
Thanks 😊 things hadn't been going to badly until Xmas really. I'm doing much better health wise myself and the council support here for my husband and me has been very good. He does have a male support worker. He's lucky - it's another young guy who he gets on with pretty well. He likes him and like...
Thanks for all your replies everyone! I was just having a bad few days and needed to vent. You guys are great to chat to when that happens! :) We have a friend visiting at the end of January, so might do an Xmas 'do over' then. At least make a posh meal and have a few drinks (well my husband's will ...
