My son had a tbi Jan 2014. He lost his speech and also has right side weakness. He has made big strides and lives on his own in Southampton. He is in his 30's and does not have any immediate family near him, I live in Northern Ireland and his dad lives in Glasgow. He visited me this weekend and his talking has come on leaps and bounds and I can now have a conversation with him He manages to keep himself busy during the day but he is lonely in the evenings and has confessed that he has been taking alchol in the evenings because he is "bored". This really worries me for lots of reasons!!!! Does anybody know of any voluntary work, groups or activities in the evening time that he could participate in I hate the idea of him turning to alchol.
