After a couple of years of dithering and with the full backing of our local authority, we have finally made the decision to move our adult son, who has severe learning disabilies, autism and challenging behaviour, to a new residential care home.
He has been at his current home for 10 years and, although attached to some of the staff there, for reasons too long to discuss here, we have explored all options and had to take the plunge.
The move will be, briefly we hope, traumatic for him and the next few months are going to be difficult for all of us.
Have any GNers been through this experience? All advice gratefully received?
