If you were diagnosed with a condition that would result in you being predominantly house-bound, other than occasional outings with plenty of notice, and you had around a year or so to prepare for this (i.e, the condition will degenerate to that level, but then stay fairly stable for a lengthy time), what would you do to prepare?
How would you live? Say you can move around your house and function reasonably well, but can’t readily leave (e.g, you need hours of work to get yourself out of the house, or your mobility / energy levels only allow you doing so infrequently).
Food is fine - you could get your groceries delivered. You could order stuff online. You could arrange entertainment. You have a roof over your head. You could make your house more accessible for yourself. You could make it a more attractive place to be, to encourage your friend gatherings to take place at your house more often.
But how do you pay for everything? The income part has me stumped. I guess you could apply for some sort of welfare, but surely that’s a last resort? I would think there would have to be reasonably paid jobs that you could do that would only require rare face-to-face time (say, once a month or better yet, none)? I just can’t think of any, apart from maybe being a programmer. And googling only brings up all those “earn millions working from home” and “earn a CEOs income and only work 5 hours a week” ads that I don’t even have to investigate to know they’re lying.
So how would a hypothetical person swing this if they didn’t want to resort to welfare?
