Looking to move out at some point

Hi all,

I'm new here and explain a bit about me in the introduction thread I created. To cut a long story short 32 years old and a wheelchair user suffering a slight setback due to unconditioned muscles seeking to move house in a few years to a major city.

Now, I've been told when I move out my budget goes up, I've also looked at a national provider of live-in care and the rates look cheap, which means I'd have my care needs looked after and I could move.

Sounds like a plan right? Any tips, advice?

    I'm just getting over the rona, but I've been told by someone that without Mum looking after me my budget would go up, which I'm sure it would. However, what'd really help is to hear the stories of others like me who've moved house. - Chris

    Try to apply directly for a supported living property in your area. Or investigate some local cheap houses.
