How can I help my partner who lost his mum to breast cancer?

It's been two years since my partners mother died of secondary breast cancer at 58, 2 years after first diagnosis. And, I find it hard to cope with him. I'm 20 and he's 28 years old. I've done everything to try and help him, I quit university to move in with him to make sure he's comforted, and I ended up working in factories to support him but he's too stubborn to get help. His older brother lives at the house too and he's a chronic alcoholic but I just need to talk to other people who have had to support partners so I don't lose my tether. I know he griefs about her still as he always talks about her and he always compares me unfavourably to her but I've spent a lot of time trying to make him better and it's not working so I've come on here for support as it's horrible.
