Urgent Support for gentleman in Ryde, 346399, Re – Posted 23/09/19

About Me

I am a 66 year old gentleman who lives in Ryde with my wife and small dog. I have a diagnosis of Primary progressive MS, Raynaud's Syndrome and few other medical concerns that affect my mobility and general health.

I would like a PA to provide the support I need to remain safe in my own home. I absolutely do not wish to move to residential care and my place is at home with my wife. I really enjoy taking our dog out for a walk, I am able to do this using my all terrain mobility scooter. I also enjoy grooming the dog. When I am out walking the dog I often meet up with some regular dog walkers and I find belonging in my community especially important.
I have a daughter, a son-in-law and a granddaughter. I was able to travel and see them at their home address in London recently and use a hotel in Archway that provided overhead hoists to enable me to stay in a hotel. The trip to see her was great and I am looking forward to doing the trip again. I travelled a lot in my younger years and I also lived abroad in Germany and Egypt.
I used to love playing the guitar and composing songs, unfortunately due to the nerve endings in my hands I am not able to play the guitar anymore. I did have a go at using an electronic keyboard to compose my songs but I didn't enjoy this. I love reading and listening to music. I am a vegetarian and a bit of a "planet activist" and encourage others to reduce their plastic usage and always do the recycling at home. I am not of any religious denomination.

My wife is very important to me and it is vital that she gets a break from her caring role. I would like to go to various places, walking the dog and listening to music are a couple of things I enjoy.
