Hello! My name is Alexandria, but you can call me Alex. My mom, dad, and step-mother are working with LIGHTS to find an appropriate housing option with a live-in caregiver and at least one roommate.
Timeline: Whenever we find the best match
Location: Anywhere in Toronto
Type of Housing: Rental apartment or house with 3 or 4 bedrooms
A Little About Myself:
I am 21 years old (in September), and I just finished high school this past June. I enjoy going to a day program twice a week. I love to make videos on my IPad from short clips on YouTube. I collect Mr. Rogers DVDs and watch some at home, and I also love to beatbox and sing. Going for walks is one of my favourite things and sometimes I will take some time to draw or paint. I am fascinated by neon OPEN signs and traffic light stops. When I’m out in a restaurant or anywhere that I don’t have my IPad, I like to play with my sensory toys.
I am very motivated by food, but I can’t prepare anything for myself without supervision and assistance. I can shower, toilet, and get dressed by myself, but I do need light, but regular supervision. I require a caregiver to always be present.
I have been diagnosed with ASD and am somewhat verbal. Very loud noises can cause me some distress. I like it to be calm and quiet at home.
I am looking for one or two female roommates who enjoy doing their own thing, and with the right caregivers, would enjoy each other’s company when given the chance.
