What happens when the worst happens? Who will be there to help your loved one find their way if you cannot? What can you do to ensure a good life for your loved one with a disability?
In this workshop, facilitator Cristin Osborne guides you in making thoughtful plans to support the one you love through times of crisis and set up supports for crisis reduction/prevention. Topics include developing support documents to help guide others in supporting your loved one, identifying existing supports, reviewing legal measures to protect your loved one and sharing stories and experiences from other families to assist in the learning process.
