Special Needs Planning For Northeast Georgia Parents And Grandparents
Planning For The Future: Special Needs Adults And Their Older Parents
Many special needs children are able to live on their own and care for themselves with minimal supervision when they reach adulthood. Others, however, will need specialized care for the remainder of their lives.
Typically, the parents of an individual with physical or mental challenges handle his or her day-to-day needs. But what happens when parents age and are no longer able to handle these requirements? What if a parent dies or becomes incapacitated?
These are issues none of us want to think about, but planning ahead for any possible misfortune or tragedy is extremely important in these situations.
When both parties are aging, planning for the care of a teenage or adult child with special needs is extremely important.
