This is the very situation I look at a lot. I am wheelchair dependent (SCI). No getting better from it. Have been this way since 2005. Now 61, I have to game plan for getting things done so that I can achieve the day's work load without hurting myself or placing myself in a medical facility. My gimpness is ever evident, for an example, when getting the woodpile ready for winter. The huge rounds I can no longer pick up and place on the splitter. I have to sledge n wedge these into smaller quarters so I can manage them.
Anticipating the decline of my health (gimps DO NOT last very long), I need to configure heating systems and machine maintenance so as to be able to care for the home I will be retiring to in 2 years. All of this, and the thought of medical upkeep to prevent infections, skin sores, or lung ailments common with wheelers.
Very good topic for discussion - I am also open to any ideas this fine group of folks could send my way - very much appreciate it!!
Looking forward to meeting you when you make it this way, brother! Hopefully the local politics will swing back the other way by two years from now.
