Job Description

Nous voudrions que vous accompagniez Alexandre dans toutes les tâches du quotidien et que vous nous donniez un coup de main dans les tâches quotidiennes. Au risque de nous répéter, il circule en fauteuil roulant mais peut aussi marcher avec un déambulateur sous surveillance car il perd souvent l'équilibre (séquelle au cervelet donc manque d'équilibre).
Il peut s'habiller seul, se doucher seul, manger seul mais ne peut pas préparer ses repas sans aide.
Il a retrouvé la parole 6 mois après l'accident et améliore encore son élocution tant en français qu'en anglais et en espagnol et apprend l'allemand depuis 3 ans.
Il est très volontaire pour participer à toutes les tâches de la maison mais son manque de coordination et des tremblements incontrôlables de son bras gauche le rendent souvent maladroit.
Alexandre est un bon joueur d'échecs, il aime aussi montrer aux autres à y jouer.
Il aime aussi le jeu de ''Magic'' si vous connaissez
Il continue sa réadaptation en faisant du Jiu Jitsu, art martial qu'il enseignait au club de JiuJitsu de l'université McGill.
Il le pratique à la maison et au dojo Kanreikai karaté avec son Sensei Dominic Morin.
Il fait aussi des exercices Red Cord à la maison et dans une clinique privée de kinésiologie où vous pourriez aussi l'accompagner.
Il aime écouter de la musique, profiter de la piscine chauffée pour faire des exercices en été.
En résumé, nous aider dans la maison, l'accompagner, l'aider à progresser.
We would like you to accompany Alexandre in all the daily tasks and that you give us a hand in the daily tasks. At the risk of repeating ourselves, he travels in a wheelchair but can also walk with a walker under supervision because he often loses his balance (sequelae to the cerebellum therefore lack of balance).
He can dress himself, shower himself, eat alone, but cannot prepare his meals without help.
He regained his speech 6 months after the accident and is still improving his speech in French, English and Spanish and has been learning German for 3 years.
He is very willing to participate in all the tasks of the house but his lack of coordination and uncontrollable tremors of his left arm often make him clumsy.
Alexandre is a good chess player, he also likes to show others how to play it.
He also likes the game of ''Magic'' if you know
He continues his rehabilitation by doing Jiu Jitsu, a martial art he taught at the McGill University JiuJitsu club.
He practices it at home and at the Kanreikai karate dojo with his Sensei Dominic Morin.
He also does Red Cord exercises at home and at a private kinesiology clinic where you could also accompany him.
He likes to listen to music, take advantage of the heated swimming pool to do exercises in the summer.
In summary, to help us in the house, to accompany him, to help him to progress.
