$150/week37 year old woman

About me, My name is Christianna and I’m a 37 year old woman looking to leave my family home for the first time to live independently in the community. I am hoping to find a caring, fun and compassionate flatmate to share a home with in the Hoppers Crossing area. I keep myself busy throughout the week with a range of activities such as reading, arts and crafts, exercise/gym, socializing with friends, knitting, playing computer and watching netflix. I also participate in a range of activities – art and crafts workshops, cooking workshops and volunteering at Vinnies, meaning my housemate will get to enjoy the home alone much of the working week. When the weather permits I also like to explore my local area and take day-trips alone to the CBD or Geelong by train. I am a sociable person and enjoy a good chat and a laugh, although I also value my own space and quiet time too. I’ve always lived in a home where most meals are shared and people are around for a chat most mornings or evenings. I am hoping to create a similar type of environment in my new home with the right person. I am looking for a property in Hoppers Crossing as I am familiar with the area. I also have a lot of support in this area from my family and support workers, which will continue after I have moved into my own home. I am looking for a housemate who is kind, patient, responsible and supportive, preferably with some understanding of intellectual disabilities. My flatmate will also have to be comfortable with dogs as I own a small dog (Silky cross Pomeranian) Gizmo who will be the third member of our home. Do not worry Gizmo is very friendly and well trained and my housemate would not be expected to care for Gizmo. In my current home my family provide me with some informal support, such as prompting me around my busy routine and supervising me on certain tasks within the home. This will be my first time living independently and I will need some informal support around the home from my new housemate. To support me on this journey the NDIS will provide some financial assistance to my housemate for supporting me on my journey to independence. The commitment from the housemate is to spend 10 hours per week providing companionship and light support in the home in return for free rent. These 10 hours will be structured each week and will most likely be in the mornings and evenings, as this is when I would most likely enjoy a chat and need support. The type of support I need is mostly around being reminded of my commitments. I may also need some supervision with difficult tasks around the house, for example when cooking some meals or troubleshooting maintenance issues. If this type of arrangement sounds like it would suit you, please get in touch with Home Share Melbourne (ollie.bates@homeshare.org.au) who are helping me to set up this arrangement.
