Nearly 2 years ago my partner suffered a brain injury after a fall. He is now left with executive functioning problems that, while he appears OK to others, in reality it means he cannot be safely left on his own for more than a day. I am his main and only carer and really need a break! His problems are not so bad he could attend day care, or go into respite care, and his family, who live miles away, don't understand the problems with constant caring and are reluctant to help, like have him for a week so I can rest! Any ideas?
