Callum is going to be receiving support from My Life soon and we are keen to ensure that his care is specific to his needs. He therefore kindly volunteered his assistance in training us on the use of his ventilator and telling us all about his health needs.
Below, you can see Callum wearing his NIV (non-invasive ventilation) mask. He is keen for people to know that it is not scary and that he wears it every night in his home whilst he sleeps at night. He has only had it for a few months and knows exactly how to put it on and get it to work.
Callum is really looking forward to meeting everyone on the Standish site and seeing all the animals that we take care of. Just like everyone else out there he is struggling being in his home all the time.
TV is no longer interesting, he loves using his Xbox but even that has got too much for him, and his computer screen broke this week! But mum, Nicole, has got a new computer on order so I hope that is with you soon Callum! Callum also loves cars and his favourites are Minis!
It’s been great to meet you Callum and thank you so much for helping me with the training for your equipment! I will hopefully see you soon after the Easter Bank Holidays. Take care, Pam.
