On April 10th a meeting was hosted in Red Deer by Kim Fox, Provincial Housing Advisory Group member, for families who were had questions about planning for their special needs family members.
Trista Carey provided information about guardianship, wills and estate planning as well as RDSP’s. John Seigner outlined programs available through The Sinneave Family Foundation, and shared some of what Sinneave has learned in the area of independent living.
The meeting was a great opportunity for families in the area to connect as a group with shared interests. It is hoped that they will continue to meet and become a support network (similar to the Aspires Housing Group in Calgary) to assist families in creating successful transitions for their young adults with autism and other disabilities.
The Aspires Housing Group of Calgary will be hosting their next business meeting at The Ability Hub, from 7-9pm on Thursday, May 2nd, 2019. Please email Lorraine Jessee, email@example.com if you would like more information or to RSVP.
