Adult Accommodation and Support Service
Service User, William, shares his journey of life in Praxis Care’s Adult Supported Living Service:
‘I wanted to live independently from day one and Praxis Care helped me to do that.’
“I began using Praxis Care services at 15 years of age when I attended a Praxis Care Day Service before moving full time to the Praxis Supported Living Accommodation scheme. Once I was 18, I moved into a Praxis Care Adult Supported Living house in Ballymena where the staff helped me to eventually move into my own accommodation and live independently which is what I always wanted to do.
I would say my life has changed for the better since coming to Praxis Care; there is a good atmosphere here. Also, the staff are really helpful and always have time for you. They have helped me with day-to-day tasks such as tidying my room, making my bed, doing the laundry, gardening, cooking and budgeting. They have taught me the skills I needed to live on my own.
I have a girlfriend now, so eventually I would like to have her move in with me. I would also like to start attending a local day activity centre. To anyone thinking of coming to Praxis Care, I would say ‘do it!’ The staff will always help you and listen to what you want and need.”
