Product description

Parents who have cared for their adult children with intellectual disabilities will one day face an important issue--who will care for them when they are no longer able? With this book, based on case studies of adults with disabilities and their families, you'll learn how to help families plan for this delicate transition. You'll explore possible services and providers who can take on the parents' role, and you'll discover how to create a network of agency and family supports. This book gives you the facts you need to help families prepare for the future and ensure that individuals with disabilities receive the best transitional supports.
