It’s been a while since I wrote a post.
Things have been busy. Arranging wheelchair skills training and ensuring the clients get the most out of the skills.
Resourcing local halls to them can be interesting if clients cannot travel to me. I search through lists of community or church halls close to their postcode. Looking to resource one that is appropriate.
All things considered
Arranging wheelchair skills training and ensuring the clients get the most out of the skills.
I have to consider the hall’s age and whether access is possible. Most halls these days have pretty good access. But also outdoor space, parking and toilet facilities.
As the client’s skills develop, we move away from the equipment used within the hall. I want to push their abilities a little. Finding an outdoor space with real-life challenges helps. Also, contending with the Great British weather is another scenario.
Parking is also a must. Making sure there is enough space for me and the client to access our wheelchairs from the car is obviously vital.
And making sure we have a bathroom we can use.
Asking for feedback waits till the right moment. Some people are happy to share written assessments of their training. However, some clients are happy to share their experiences on camera. After some training, there isn’t time to record feedback. Albeit verbal feedback is always shared and is always positive.
Adding to YouTube
It’s been a while since I wrote a post. Things have been busy, although as my channel grows, it’s time to release a new playlist.
After the success of The Quick Curry House Review, Wheelchair Pushing Diaries was put into production.
Wheelchair Pushing Diaries is a series of videos of journies I have taken in my wheelchair. I’ve added commentary over the clips so people can understand what I’m doing. Sometimes, I share my thoughts as I propel myself along my journey.
The clips are edited with speed and focus. They are a mix of slow action shots and fast wheeling.
As I risk wheeling in the road. I am fully aware of my surroundings and completely control my wheelchair and direction. Wheeling on the road brings peril and the possibility of an accident. Additionally, these dangers could also happen when using the path. The only extra associated hazard is the traffic using the thoroughfare. But I am happy to be responsible for my safety. If I need to vacate the road, I will and can.
I do not recommend using the road if you are not confident.
The Coming Weeks
Over the coming weeks, destinations for wheelchair skills bookings include Aylesbury, Stoke-on-Trent, Manchester, Kings Cross, and Kent.
Journies are planned, hotels booked, and preparations made so everything runs smoothly.
