During your 45-minute visit I will require you to help me put on my compression socks and assist with my eye drops. You will also be required to ensure the floor is clear of hazards, and at times have a quick tidy up around the house e.g. fetching items I cannot reach, doing the washing up and putting the rubbish out.
