Assisted Housing Options for Adults With Special Needs

For many families, providing adequate housing for a child with special needs can be fairly straightforward, particularly if the child remains in the primary residence with one or both parents. As the child gets older, there are considerations that need to be dealt with to ensure stability as they enter into adulthood and their aging parents might be facing issues related to their own health.

 

Above all, the most important thing is that parents of an individual with special needs are planning and having these really hard conversations while everything is relatively calm. Too frequently we have this conversation when mom or dad is having a medical crisis. Then everyone is panicked but a lot of times they wait too long and choices are more limited. The longer the delay the more limited the options are, so it’s critical that families start having these necessary conversations well in advance.
