Day shifts would involve personal care/range of motion / transferring into bathroom chair/bathroom routine/showering and getting dressed for the day, transfer into wheel chair, light house work / help with my children to maintain a healthy and happy family life… day to day projects. Essentially, to be my hands and legs as needed! 🙂
