"If you can get a  the roll-in shower, I highly recommend it. As a 30-year-old, it definitely makes life a lot easier.  It definitely has saved my parent's backs."

My dad is an unpaid caretaker to cover my lack of hours. He is moving to learn to be a flight instructor. I'm staying in town because I want to be more independent. When he moves out I will not have enough care hours from the state to support my need for 24-hour care. We had the idea of using all…See More

Hey Matt,

I just recently started writing myself (after having thought about it for years). I would love to read some of your stuff if you don't mind sharing.

I too would love to change ideas about disability, especially for my son Simon.

Welcome to PPMD, and I hope your desire to be as independent as possible works out for you. Since our son is 11 and we live in Canada, I have no experience to help you out in that area, but I can wish you luck.

Andrea
