on his better days or days where he isnt struggling himself yes he can be left on his own for a few hours @Darcy
he also has a mobile and a house phone with my mobile number on speed dial if her ever needs me
he doesnt go to any seniors groups though he does go to his friend house for an hour every second day unless he isnt well and can drive there as its a very short distance so maybe i could use that hour for something instead of trying to get the hosue clean..
he is mobile like he doesnt need a walking frame just yet but probably soon. he is more because he cant bend over, lift anything heavy, has had many surgeries and i nearly lost him 2 years ago and it went wrong so now we have to monitor all those things as well as him having a driving phobia so anywhere thats more than 10 minutes away i need to drive him so pretty much everywhere except his mates house and the little corner shop.
he has a very bad and weak ankle and it has given way quite a few times so i need to monitor him, he can shower himself etc but i need to be around just as a just in case thing.
