How to support my partner and my family

I have been with my boyfriend for nearly two years, his mum was diagnosed with lung cancer last year which has spread to the brain and is now terminal. 

His mum has recently gone into hospital and my partner has been visting her every day, all day (I have visited also, around work hours and until I came down with a sickness bug.) 

I have been keeping on top of the familys housework, cooking dinners and making lunches but feel that I need to do more. My partner tells me the bare minimum and doesn't discuss his feelings regarding the situation so I feel I can't emotionally support him and I want to do more for him and his family.

Has anyone been in a similar situation and can share some support advice?
