Providing flexible support options for people with a disability and their families and carers

Cathy’s Story

Cathy, a Mercy Disability Services Client'My name is Cathy and I lived in a house with three other people for a long time.  I spoke with my support staff about moving out of the house to a flat with one other person.  I know I had to learn new skills to move as I need to be able to support myself and make choices of what I want to do. I did that and now I am excited to be living in a flat with my friend. We live in Chermside. I go to the Library on my own as they have good CD’s and DVD’s. I booked myself into aqua swimming at Chermside pool and go there on my own. I have learnt to do many new things and I am so happy with my new found independence. My family and support staff are all so proud of me.'
