Where do most special needs adults go after their parents die off & family can’t take them. Also even if they did go with family eventually if they outlive them where could they go after that. Does the state take over? Are there programs or homes? Does the state pay since I assume it would be expensive. My brother in law is 26yrs old his parents are 67 & 69yrs old. His mom had him later in life. She was already looking to place him with my husband& I five yrs ago because she wants to make sure the fit is good before she dies off even though they are both healthy now. Since I take care of my disabled husband when I’m not working full time this was impossible for me so I said I could not. He also has numerous medical issues that arise suddenly & has a special Dr assigned to him a good hr+ drive away. There is also a chance he could eventually end up with Leukemia. Any ideas?
