With a broad grin, David welcomed us into the home that he shares with another young man.
“It’s good to meet you – I’ve been looking forward to this,” he says. Almost instantly we’re enjoying a discussion about music he is listening to and he’s introducing us to new musicians we’ve never heard of. He’s hoping to attend a disco with his carer Jenny soon. This will involve travelling quite a way, so will need careful planning, but it is an adventure he is very keen to embrace.
“Baptist Care SA helps me get organised and assists me to do the things I want to do.” David continues, “They’re friendly and we have fun together.”
The cookery book on the table, which David has put together to keep his favourite recipes handy, demonstrates his passion for cooking. This was backed up by a food handling course to ensure he is safe in the kitchen. “I really like lasagna and pasta – I’m not so keen on tofu!”
David is ‘football mad’ and was thrilled to be able to attend an Adelaide Crows game last season.
“My next goal is to go to interstate to visit friends and family. I hope I’ll be able to go with my brother who lives here in Adelaide too.”
David is a Baptist Care SA NDIS client. We’ve worked for David for the past few years and it’s been great to see him develop and grow. Our sincere thanks to him for sharing his day with us.
