We all think about the future, some of us more than others. When your relative has severe learning disabilities and displays challenging behaviour, their needs will be more complex. Because of this it is a good idea to plan ahead and to think of all possibilities, especially during transition to adult services or if moving to a house or flat which will require staff.
Planning for the future: Support options, housing, personalisation and transition to adult services
These information packs are aimed at families faced with their relative’s transition to adult services or moving from one type of care placement to another. It is hoped that they will provide the tools families require as they start to plan for future support and opportunities for their relatives, including education, housing, employment and community involvement for the individual. The main topics covered are:
- Person centred planning
- Changes to rights at adulthood
- Frequent challenges
- Who can help
Times of change are hard work. The key is to plan ahead and start as early as you can! Information is essential and this pack has been put together so that you don’t have to do this on your own.
Please note, the Wales and Northern Ireland versions have not been updated since 2013 so information included may be out of date.
