Hi my name is Sunita and I’m a parent of 27 years old autistic son with learning disabilities. He currently lives with us at home. My husband and I care for him full time as well as run our own business
We would like him to go to a respite placement of our choice and have more say. which we hope will be funded by social service.
Can you please advise as whether we need to get power of attorney or deputy ship.
I hope you can advise
Thanks for your question. So that other parents can see it, it’s best to post your question on the homepage of FamilyHub. You can find instructions on how to do this here.
