I live in a home in Stirling with another man; Focus looks after both of us. I have a busy week with golf, gym, music lessons and dancing. I used to work as a gardener but now I am retired. On the weekends I like to spend time with my family. I like to go to the club with my brother and his wife for dinner. I go on holidays twice a year with an assisted travel group.

I live in a house in Ngunnawal with a housemate. Focus helps me with my daily needs. I have a few activities I do regularly and I like to try new things. I enjoy watching movies and playing computer games. I attend activities with community organisations during the week and catch up with my friends. I also like to go shopping and eating yummy food, going to the movies, colouring in and watering my plants. I sell the Big Issue at the local shopping centre.
