Great!
Thank you bowling bun. We are civil partners now, as you can be, so I think that should be ok. A week of somewhere for him, or us to be while I sort out new floors and other things, but I just can't get my head around where or how that could possibly be
Thank you all, that's very helpful. At first the present care package was arranged by NHS. But after a few weeks it was transferred to the local authority. I find the carers very helpful, but their agency and local authority incredibly inflexible/rigid regardless of need. I am of course worried that...
Hi! I haven't been on forum for a long time, and then had computer problems, but finally made it back! My partner has MS and now needs to move to a bungalow as present house not appropriate.

I realise I often act confident with my partner, but am really anxious. I recently admitted this to my partner and found out he was covering up his anxiety ...
oh how difficult for it to now jump all of a sudden so quickly, but maybe because you are reeling from this crisis, it’s making you think you have less time than you’ve got. My partner has MS, which isnt in theory terminal, although related things can be-falls with internal bleeding, septicaemia etc...
Goodness other people on this forum will know better than me, but I am sure you don’t have to do this. I would be wary of any professionals trying to put pressure on you, but I think you need to be very clear and firm. Anyway they don’t know him and your situation like you do, and if they make assum...
