Description We are seeking a Network Friend with a positive attitude and resilience for a man in his early sixties living with MS. He is a laid-back individual whose professional music career was interrupted due to MS after he received his Bachelor of Music degree. The MS does affect his energy level but he is astute and is able to carry on an intellectual discussion. He has limited mobility and uses a manual wheelchair. With handyDART transportation arranged, he would enjoy going out to concerts, cafes, the museum and the IMAX theatre in the post-pandemic future. At the moment, he would also love to receive visits once or twice a month, following the protocols of the care facility where he lives.
