You are considered to be able to live on your own if you can perform the normal activities of day-to-day living or can do so with the aid of support services and can show that those support services will be provided if needed. Yes, but only if you qualify. Some housing providers have units that have been modified to accommodate wheelchairs or other equipment because of a physical disability. To qualify for one of these units you must supply information from your doctor that you require a modified unit. You must be able to live on your own in this unit, or with supports provided by community agencies. It will be up to you to arrange these supports.
