When I was 26, I moved out of my parents’ house into my own supportive apartment. Since then, I’ve lived in a nursing home, a group home, in apartments by myself, and with a roommate.
I now enjoy my own apartment in downtown Niagara Falls. I like to go out, and often ride my bike and hover-round around the city. I live on a bus route, so I can get around the city, get to my job at Burger King, do my own shopping, and go out without having to rely on others.
