Roger broke his neck in a car accident in 1977, on the day he was due to become a professional racing driver. Following many years in hospital, Roger managed to start to live independently with care provided in his own home. This care has been provided by a dedicated live-in team of Personal Assistants from Active Assistance since 1992.
It wasn’t until the late 1980’s that Roger took up painting. An activity in which he has excelled. He has exhibited his paintings at the Royal Academy, as he is completely self-taught and paints with his mouth.
Roger is now a member of the Association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists and continues to enjoy developing his skills.
Roger says,“Prior to finding Active, there wasn’t a company who supported spinal injuries for people in their own homes. That’s why I love Active Assistance!
I like to see my PA’s as friends. We often go out to interesting destinations, such as Kew Gardens and the Classic Car show at The Exxon Centre, near Greenwich.”
