My name is Jørgen. I was born with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Since I cannot move my arms and legs, I need help with practically everything in my daily life, i.e. going to the toilet, personal grooming, eating, dressing/undressing, and basically everything that a physically fit person does from getting up in the morning until going to bed at night.
The only thing that I don’t need help with is planning and controlling my daily life. I currently live in my privately owned 60-m² apartment. Through the BPA scheme (user-controlled personal assistance), I can find, employ and manage my assistants myself. During the night, I use the borough’s night alarm service, which is installed in my apartment and only connected to me.
