You are independent with a good sense of humour. You appreciate your own space and are happy to be at home whilst your roommates are out and about working and engaging in community activities.
Civic staff are available for support and assistance with decision-making. Although you require support at times, you are encouraged and prompted to build independence and develop skills on your own.
You will be aged between 18 – 35 years, mobile, verbal, with moderate support.
Your roommates are athletic and social – they keep busy by engaging in regular outdoor activities – including gardening, bowling, camping, and fishing together weekly. They are major football fans (supporters of the Bulldogs in particular!). AFL and Rugby league is also a popular sport to watch in this home. One of the boys is a fan of the Roosters – requesting a Roosters inspired birthday cake every year!
One housemate builds his own miniature cars as a hobby, to decorate his room. He also like animals, enjoys spending time on the computer making interactive slideshows, and participates in regular outdoor activities.
“This is a fun and social house to live in. The housemates are friendly, active, and live very fulfilled lives,” says Jeané.
