Bio

Claudine is the mother of Eva, who is in her late 30s.

Eva has very high support needs, does not speak to communicate and needs support to use her wheelchair to get around. She loves the outdoors, friends, plenty of banter and is a volunteer reading mentor at the local school.

Apart from helping Eva find her place in the community, Claudine coordinates her exercise program to improve stamina, mobility and communication.

Eva is becoming independent of Claudine while still living in the family home. This turns out to be a practical, safe, effective and non-disruptive (or less traumatic?) way to approach autonomous supported living.
