Hi, I suffered a spinal cord injury in 2014. I hurt myself snowboarding, which has left me a quadriplegic. I am paralyzed and cannot use my legs or my hands, and I have limited use of my arms.
I have recovered well from the injury and do physical therapy regularly. I work in marketing, and spend some days at the office and some days I work from home. I live in downtown Manhattan and I share a two bedroom apartment with my girlfriend.
Tasks include helping me out of bed in the morning (Hoyer lift), bowel regimen/enema, catheter, showering, getting dressed, and stretching. I currently have a health aid that helps me do this, and between myself and this person, we will be able to properly teach you the tasks.
Additionally, I need help with meal preparation, housecleaning, driving & errands. Drivers license preferred.
