You deserve peace of mind. LifeSPAN is here to assist.
After you are gone, who will be there for your son or daughter (brother or sister) with a disability?
People with disabilities need extra support to live in the community. And, most often, they will outlive their parents, older relatives or primary caretakers.
What are your plans to make sure supports are there when you are no longer around? Have you told your family what your plans are? Have you made a will which will make sure your son or daughter does not lose their government benefits?
How can you start making plans? Where do you begin? Thinking about the future and trying to plan ahead is an emotional experience which takes courage.
Through workshops, seminars, mutual family mentoring, personal support network facilitation and a lifetime commitment (for those interested in an ongoing relationship with our organization), LifeSPAN offers you the opportunity to make a plan now, supported by staff and other families as needed. This plan will be in place during your lifetime while you can see it in action. It will continue beyond your death.
What makes it hard for parents to imagine a satisfying life in the community for their son or daughter? Trusting in others and believing that people in the community will see the gifts of their children and relatives with a disability.
Join with other families like yours to create “a good life” through
