  • Do you wonder what will happen to your sibling when your parent(s) die or are too feeble to care for them?Do you have concerns about a Guardianship or Power of Attorney?
    • Where will they live?
    • Who will provide their care?
    • How will their care be paid for?
  • Do you know about Special Needs Trusts – Designed to protect their government benefits?
  • Are your future plans for your sibling the same as your parents and/or other siblings?

Join us for this very informative meeting! You will not want to miss this opportunity to meet other siblings of individuals with disabilities who, no doubt, are just as excited to meet you! Together we can explore, learn, share, and discuss the differences and similarities of our siblings and ourselves . . . . and most importantly, our future plans!

    Dear Karen and Friends,

    I have explored guardianships and special needs trusts and my parents, are in denial. I have always attacked problems head-on, and at the same time, respected my brother, Antonio, who is 56, with an intellectual disability (ID/DD). We have always resolved issues with family conferences.

    Presently, I am working with a social worker, who knows my parents, brother, and I, well, and when my parents pass, we will see what the will and power of attorney says, and if we do not feel it takes care of Antonio well, be prepared to go to court.

    Still not giving up. Working to get Antonio settled while both of my parents are alive and I am alive (I have chronic health problems, even though I am 54).

    When there’s life, there’s hope!

    Yours truly,

    Monica
