Speech and language therapy built into care package

thornintheside Member Posts: 1 Listener
My son is now 50 yrs. old; we are, as many others will be, very anxious for his future when we are no longer around.  He currently lives in his own bungalow in his own tenancy supported by a care package from the local social services.  But that package fails him since it does not provide for his very specific LANGUAGE needs; not his speech but his ability to use and understand language.  

We are therefore seeking a service provision where he can receive input from a speech and language therapist BUILT INTO his care package, rather than having to rely on the piecemeal and substandard arrangements currently in place; which does NOT meet the needs required.     Does anyone know of a facility that can provide meaningful, and indeed legal, input for what is effectively a communication disability.

It doesn't really matter whereabouts this might be - we can move - but preferably in the north.
