Disabled son and care legalities.
I need to arrange for care for my son. He has learning difficulties and aspergers. He is a good kid overall, good set of ethics and not violent so easy to handle, but the time has come now for him to be looked after by somebody else.
What legal things do i need to sort out and should i consider residential care or another carer (like myself) to just be his family for him? I've got the 2nd one sorted out, just nothing legal in place. Wondering if residential car would allow him to be more independent, but if SS run it then i'll give that a miss coz they're ****.
