Bryce’s Story

Bryce lives in his own home together with his support companions, Sulu and Litia, and his loving dog Mollie.

He has a unique arrangement that has been created just for him. Our companion living arrangement has been a game changer for Bryce who says that after seven years in hospital “it got me out of the system”.

It’s allowed him to stay in his own home and have choice and control in selecting his housemates and designing a support system specific to his needs.

Bryce is also involved in the lives of his parents, sister, brother-in-law and 3 nephews, so the companionship arrangement allows Bryce and his family to spend more quality time together creating memories and having fun!

Sulu also enjoys the freedom and flexibility that the companionship arrangement offers and says the most rewarding thing is helping someone else. Sulu says that while some people may call it companionship, “Bryce is part of the family.”
