Caroline Fahy - My Story of Independent Living

After many years hoping and wishing for my own home it has finally happened!!!

I now have my own apartment in Limerick city and my own team of support staff so I can live independently. I live near my parents which means a lot to me as I can visit whenever I want.

Living independently brings its own challenges which are exciting and I look forward to taking on the challenges. 

I have worked for this for a number of years to reach this goal. I completed FETAC level 3 in independent living skills which has helped me greatly.

With the support of my life coach Bernie Ryan and the staff in Enable Ireland I prepared well for this time. The team in the I.W.A. support me at home and the HSE have also supported my goal.

This is a very exciting time and I am extremely happy.
