Amanda is 49 years old and mum of three. Amanda has a profound hearing impairment and until recently she was living with her parents who helped with Amanda’s day-to-day support needs.

 

Amanda has been a client of InFocus for over three years.  She received help from her InFocus Support Coordinator Mini to move out of her parent’s place and into her own home.

 

Mini assisted Amanda to find and put in place the supports that she needed to enable her to live in her own home.  

 

Now, with the appropriate support, Amanda is more self-sufficient at home and is doing many more things independently. Amanda enjoys baking in her new home, she can confidently manage tasks such as paying her electricity and phone bills and is building stronger relationships with her children.

 

Amanda is pictured with her son Rowan in their new home.
