Aging with a Disability -A Guide for Older Parents and Future Caregivers of Adults with Disabilities
Released: August 2015
As the parent of an adult child with a disability, you have been responsible for making most of the financial, medical, and legal decisions for your family member for many decades. Now that you are getting older, you may want to get ahead of the game and do some future planning. Or perhaps you are facing more short-term challenges: your son or daughter no longer wants to live with you, he or she is old enough to “retire,” or you are no longer able to provide the level of care that is best for your adult child.
This guide for older parents and future caregivers of adults with disabilities will give an overview of many aspects of future planning not related to money. Instead, communicating your vision for the future and having your son or daughter participate in that conversation.
