This book is based on the experiences of families who live in Western Australia and Canada who had a common desire - a good life for their family members with disability, now and in the future. Who would care for their family member when they were no longer around? Who would protect them and keep them safe? Who would appreciate and nurture their gifts? This book provides a step by step guide to planning for the future based on the shared experiences of these families. Written to inspire families to action, it provides information and options related to trusts and government benefits, home and lifestyle options, financial and estate planning, guardianships and alternatives and social supports. It includes worksheets and practical examples of how families have approached and developed their own plans for the future.
