About Down's Syndrome : Clare

My name is Clare. I am 29 years old. I have been living in my own home for 6 years.

Down's syndrome

I like to keep busy. I work in a café 2 days a week and work in a day centre 1 day a week.

I also enjoy my drama group and youth clubs. I love being social and enjoy meeting my friends, going out to the pub, visiting family and bowling!

I like to keep busy. I work in a café 2 days a week and work in a day centre 1 day a week.

My hobbies are music, dancing and swimming.

I need help at home with cooking, planning my meals and looking after myself, but I like being independent with no one telling me what to do!

In the future I would like to have a boyfriend and get married.
