“I constantly worry about our son and what his future holds, and how he will fare after we die.”
Our Living With Disability Study paints a startling picture of the life-long challenges surrounding everyday life and future concerns for parents of adult children with disabilities and adults with disabilities.
Many parents worry their adult children’s basic needs for employment, housing, transportation, social interactions, recreation, healthcare and financial security will not be met:
Easterseals will use these findings to raise awareness of and advocate for the life-long services families desperately need—working to lessen these disparities and bridge the gap for the many people living with developmental disabilities.
Easterseals thanks MassMutual for making the study possible. As an Easterseals national corporate partner, MassMutual is committed to serving children and adults with disabilities through its exclusive SpecialCareSM program, a solution that gives families living with autism and other disabilities access to information, specialists, and financial strategies that can help improve their quality of life.
