A brand new year. It’s that time of year when the holiday season is over and there’s white space in our calendars to work on new goals. Honestly, for me, it’s a fresh start filled with hope that I will get things done this year…without procrastinating! Sometimes, it’s the getting started part that seems overwhelming for me; after that, I can get in a groove and knock out tasks.
With that thought in mind, I want to help those of you who are looking for group homes for adults with intellectual disabilities but need a jumpstart. I’ve made a list of some questions (in no particular order) to consider along your journey to find the best place for your loved one.
Of course, this list is not all inclusive, but hopefully, it will be food for thought. Best of luck to you as you advocate for your loved one so that he or she can thrive – not just live – at the appropriate level of independence!
