Care for my daughter to live independently

ha5el47 Member Posts: 1 Listener
Hi Everyone,I have brought up my daughter who has learning disabilities and serious anxiety problems for many years now.I have found that there is no where near enough help,there is help but it's very minimal.Although she has matured physically as someone without disability, emotionally and psychologically she has not matured to functioning fully as an adult.For the last 12years she has lived in her own flat but still needs a lot of support.She has carers coming in to help and she is perpetually on the phone to me.She could do with more input from carers but is afforded only a limited time,9hrs a week.I realise that others are experiencing pretty much the same even for those even worse placed than my daughter, with physical and/or learning disabilities.My daughter is now in her mid-forties.
