    well most of you will not want to know this but i had to tell someone on Friday a carer took my hubby across the road to the shops to buy an ice cream . not a big deal to most people but to me it was like winning the lottery, so another day i will try this and then maybe we can go from there and have a small outing later on

    That sounds like the carer taking them out was a very positive step for both you and your other half, sometimes it takes others to show them the benefits of going out.
    The furthest my wife wants to go is to the supermarket and back, n it's not too long after we've started shopping that she starts to ask to go home again; as this is the only chance we get to get any shopping in, I have to make shrewd get round the supermarket quickly.
    She is positive to trips out to visit things she likes, like visiting Redwings Horse Sanctuary as she loves horses, we went two years ago n another visit is scheduled sometime this year. Maybe that's part of the key to encourage them to go out more
