Planning for Independent Living for a Family Member with a Life-Long Disability
July 13, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Families of persons with special needs are often unaware of the various housing options and in-home supports which enable their loved one to live independently. This workshop will discuss how to use your private resources to partner with government benefits and agencies to enable families to best plan for their dependent’s future. We’ll explore alternatives to traditional “provider based” group homes and congregate care settings that were, up until recent years, the only options available. Changes in Federal Home and Community Based Services (HC) housing policies have made it possible for persons with special needs to have housing options similar to those persons without disabilities.
