As families, we have the question of who will care for our loved one with a disability when we no longer can?
People with intellectual and developmental disabilities have less than 20% of the number of relationships compared to a typical person.
This leads to loneliness, which is more harmful to our health than smoking a pack of cigarettes every day.
In this video, I explain how to build relationships.
You can create a happy and full life for your loved one with a developmental or intellectual disability – that isn’t reliant on you. You can make this transformation happen for your loved one and your family.
To do this… We must elevate our expectations for what is possible.
Start by focusing on relationships. In this video, I also show you how to create and deepen relationships for your loved one.
