Independent Living

“Independence doesn’t mean someone is totally alone, it can mean doing things for yourself or knowing how to make the most of help when you need it.”

It can be daunting to think about growing up, leaving school, entering the ‘adult world’, moving out of your parents home.

New experiences like looking for a job, taking on more responsibility and transitioning from child to adult healthcare can seem daunting and like a lot of hard work!

As each of us go through life changes , we may experience increased expectations from those around us, such as the need to do more things on our own and find opportunities to participate in social activities. It doesn’t mean you will automatically know the answer to questions about how to do independent living – the process of learning doesn’t happen overnight and it’s always OK to ask questions!
