Crochet or Cross Stitch Using One Hand?

I've had a stroke and am paralyzed on my left side so I have given up crocheting, and cross stitching. Anyone have ideas to do either in an adaptable way?

This YouTube video says to use a long Tunisian hook or to tape your crochet hook securely to a long knitting needle. You then stick the needle under the arm of your bad hand and crochet with your good hand The instructions are here:m.youtube.com/watch?v=4-7zRyKqlqk.

If you have time, try browsing a hardware store in the "clamps and vise grips" section? I'm not sure the result would be inexpensive, but am certain you would find something to hold your embroidery hoop firmly in place.
