Special Needs Respite Care:
A-1 Home Care Agency provides Respite Care for family caregivers, giving you time off to rest. Family caregivers are under constant stress and having some time to yourself will help keep you in good health. Knowing your loved one, adult or child, is in professional and caring hands means you can recharge without worry.
Independent Living with Special Needs:
There are plenty of special needs adults that reside in homes. Even though they can essentially live independently, they could enjoy a higher quality of life having a professional caregiver by their side assisting with their needs and providing companionship. This extra care also provides peace of mind to their loving family who may have to work or tend to other responsibilities.
Special Needs Trusts
Being a parent is a never-ending commitment. No matter how old and successful your child is, you will always love, support and worry about their happiness and well-being.
Having a child with special needs who is on the spectrum or has developmental delays, intellectual / cognitive disorders, or physical disabilities takes parental love and care to new levels.
You must plan for their ongoing personal care and financial needs before your health fails and you’re no longer able to care for your adult child yourself.
Arranging a Special Needs Trust using an attorney that can customize your child’s supplemental income is the best protection you can provide.
Many families believe government assistance programs will provide the support your child will need as they age.
Unfortunately, public benefits programs, such as Medicaid, will not pay for necessary or desirable medical equipment to improve mobility and safety. Your child may not be eligible for items such as a hospital bed in their home, a customized wheelchair or vehicle.
A Special Needs Trust that is customized to fit your child’s exact medical, social and financial situation will provide the best care when you’re incapacitated.
It’s also important to use an attorney who’s knowledgeable to create a Special Needs Trust that is capable of utilizing the resources you’ve arranged without making your child ineligible for government benefits. Placing the disabled person’s assets in their own name (the current limit is $2,000) instead of in a Special Needs Trust, might make them ineligibility.
You can include instructions on the quality and type of personal care agencies used. By stipulating the agency hired to provide Caregivers, Companions, Personal Care Assistants, Home Health Aides or Certified Nurse Aides are from State Licensed, Bonded and Insured home care organizations contracted / approved by Regional Centers will help the trust manager find a care provider right for your child’s needs.
Receiving home care services from a Home Care Organization that has care providers experienced with clients who are on the spectrum or have intellectual / cognitive disorders, , physical disabilities, developmental delays, or behavioral disorders will ensure your child is getting the care and companionship they need and deserve.
Your attorney can contact the local Regional Center to locate an approved and contracted Respite Care or Homemaker agency.
