Job Purpose: To assist with a variety of tasks which will support me to live an independent personal and social life. I live with my wife, but am trying to be less dependent on her for everything.
I have a weak left side after a stroke in 2013 and am mainly wheelchair dependent. Can stand and step, and do transfers, but need someone nearby. I have a power chair and accessible garden space. I enjoy being outdoors as much as I can. I used to be an inventor and still have a workshop where I do what I can manage and sometimes need help.
I want to walk and see a physiotherapist regularly and need help with exercise.
