If you're a young adult with a chronic health condition or disability, finding a place that is safe, accessible, and within your budget may take some time and effort. It's important to think about what your needs are, how much you can afford and if you will need any support. Options for living more independently:
- Low Cost Housing is for those with a limited income but who are able to live on their own without support.
- Accessible Housing is for those who need homes that have been adapted to meet physical challenges.
- Supported Independent Living, Support Homes and Supportive Roommates allow young adults to live on their own, with another family, or with a roommate. The support provided can include such things as budgeting, meal planning, chores, emotional support, companionship, personal care and safety.
- Group Homes or Overnight Staffed Homes/Residences are for young adults who are not able to live on their own, but would do well living in a group setting where there is support
Adapting a Home
If you have mobility challenges, you may also need to make changes to an existing or new home to meet your needs. There is funding to help you make such changes.
