    Hope I'm not out of bounds for coming back to post from time to time on some more general topics.

    Since GJ passed just recently, friends and acquaintances have reminded me, NL it is okay to ask for help and you don't have to do it all. I haven't checked out these suggestions for myself. The daughter of a friend said the family found Task Rabbit invaluable for finding help with a wide range of odd jobs, when her mother passed away. There is probably more availability in metropolitan areas of the country. Another suggestion was searching for or posting what you are looking for on Nextdoor, a neighbor to neighbor social media website.

      The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

          That's a great resource, thank you for positing it.

                But what about small jobs around the house on an ongoing basis like moving stuff, organizing, cleaning, and just upkeep in general? We'd go broke paying such handyman prices on a daily basis (few times a month). What do people do for that level of help?
                We use Craigslist and Offer Up for house cleaning, yard service even handy man service. Check around and ask for referrals from friends to.

                  To keep up with the small job, I ask for near relatives or friends help. Hiring a contractor for such job will be over pricing. So, near relatives or friends are your best option.
