I work for the family of a 31 year old gentleman with cerebral palsy.

He uses a power chair and has a cognitive disability.

His family owns a ~2500 sq foot 4 bedroom fully accessible house, and currently he lives there with his parents, and has support staff that come in every day. There is also a basement suite downstairs that could potentially house 2 people who are more mobile.

The folks are getting older and are interested in moving to a condo.

The family aren’t interested in a group home, so we have an idea and wonder if other families might be interested. We could use this opportunity to create a sweet little community.

We would like to convert the house to have 3 people who use wheelchairs share the upstairs, and share staff, to create efficiencies and foster a community.

Ideally, they are looking for people around 20-50 years old, who receive CLBC funding for support workers, and who are looking for this kind of living arrangement – a bit more independent and self-sufficient than what a group home can offer. The family would rather run the house privately, as opposed to under VIHA, so that everyone more freedom and independence. The family is also open to the idea of selling shares in the home instead of just renting rooms if that’s what other families are looking for.We would need to talk about the details in terms of the finances, staff, furniture, etc. and what that could look like. If you’re interested, let me know and we can talk about how to make this work.
