Hi all my partner had his assessment today, he came back and openly told me about it. Usually I have to ask if how any appointment has gone. Although he was mentally tired he wanted to tell me how it had gone, which was a good sign. He had lots of different tests, remembering things, acknowledging pictures etc. His assessor said that she is setting up a packaging of care for him. She also mentioned a group that meet at the unit, and he got to meet some of them while he was there. I said to him this is all positive, and because he's never had any help he needs to grab everything offered to him. He said that he wants to and that the unit said any groups that offer activities will help motivation.
This is a weight taken off my shoulders, for seven years its been a struggle to be everything needed to help him. Now being in the system he can get a better support. I can then focus on myself for a change.
I hope you are all well today
