Moving into residential care
My older brother has Down’s Syndrome and has always lived at home with my parents. Now they are in their eighties, they are finding it harder to cope, so he is going to stay in a group home 5 days a week, and come home at weekends. The home is lovely and so far, he seems to like the idea, but it is very early days (he just moved in yesterday) and my worry is that, once the novelty wears off, he may want to come home. It would be great if anyone had any tips or advice for smoothing the transition, and for helping him to adapt to his new situation?
