Thinking Ahead: supporting families to feel confident about the future
Christine Towers: Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities
‘Don’t wrap us in cotton wool- we need to learn to cope’
‘We need to be included when people are seriously ill or dying’
‘We need to go to funerals so we know what to expect’
People should talk to us more about our future life’
‘We need to be less protective but it’s difficult when we see our relatives aren’t safe in their homes and when out and about’
‘We need to have confidence in organisations providing support and in the quality of staff’
‘There’s never a good time to plan but we need to stop burying our heads’
