Good afternoon all, I have a dilemma , my son is 20 with CP , we have been keeping him at home , he goes to residential college, due to Covid. I’m having trouble sending him back , fear is stopping me , what should I do ? Are any of you in the same position? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Hi @Tree79 welcome in board 

    What are you fearful of in sending him back ? Is it your fear or his 

    I understand your apprehension I felt lost after my son went back to school in sept and that wasnt boarding either 

    It may be best in the long run for his development and experience

    Hello @Tree79 and a very warm welcome to the community :) 

    Have you been in touch with the college to discuss your concerns? They might be able to put your mind at ease about the situation.

    I have been in touch with the college, they are in full PPE etc . I just feel so guilty, they have suggested he goes back next week, last before Christmas break . Thing is he can’t stay off indefinitely. Thanks

    Hi @Tree79
    Good to meet you. What has your son said that he would like to do? Does your son have any other conditions other than CP?

    He is a wheelchair user , has gastro button. He is now going back next week, for the last week before Christmas, he will not really cooperate with work/ physio with me , he needs to be at College. Thanks for your reply

    Sounds as though your son has made his decision. Have you been given an opportunity to read the colleges' Covid procedures?
