Son with autism, transition process to supported living advice?

Clodaghdarling Community member Posts: 1 Listener
I have have a son with autism who is coming up 19 and going through the transition process to supported living quite unsuccessfully.  We don’t seem to have have much support from social services in this respect.  Hoping to hear others’ stories and advice - how does someone find a home of their own with 2-1 24/7 support?  Especially when they have bowel issues and are sometimes challenging?  We’ve got a multidisciplinary team but it seems that there is little to no options.  My son would dearly love his own place and his Dad and I are finding ourselves getting too old to cope.  That’s it really.  Any advice would be very much appreciated! 😕
