      For most, moving out of their parent’s home to live on their own is a normal coming of age step. It may be an inconvenience to pay their own bills and have full responsibility for their place of living but for people with disabilities, living independently can be daunting when you must also manage your own healthcare, caregivers, and on top of all that, afford such a lifestyle on disability income.
