Forever in Good Hands: Providing for Your Disabled Childs Needs After Your Passing.

I think the one thing that worries parents of children who have disabilities, is what will happen to their child on the event of the parent’s death. There are many things you can put into place to help ensure them a more comfortable and secure future, but you need to do them sooner rather than later.


Planning for the future is an essential step for any family, but it is particularly important for those with disabled children. As a parent, your priority is to ensure your child’s wellbeing and security, not only while you are alive but also after your passing. Estate planning is a crucial tool that can help protect your child’s future and ensure that their needs are met.

Ensuring the well-being of our loved ones after we pass away is a crucial reason to create a will. This is especially true if you have a child with a disability, as they may require specialized and often expensive care.

It’s important to note that the term “disabled” can refer to a wide range of disabilities, including physical and/or learning disabilities. Individuals can be vulnerable for various reasons, and it’s essential to carefully consider the provisions that should be included in a will to benefit them.

By taking the time to create a comprehensive will, you can provide peace of mind for yourself and your loved ones, knowing that their needs will be taken care of even after you’re gone. Don’t hesitate to seek professional guidance to ensure that your will is legally sound and tailored to your specific circumstances.

Determining the best living arrangements for your child with special needs can be a daunting task. It is crucial to consider various factors such as financial benefits, support from family members, and care plans. Additionally, it is essential to contemplate your child’s life expectancy and medical prognosis.

Once you have carefully evaluated all of these factors, it is time to create a will that includes appropriate financial provisions. This will ensure that your child’s future is secure and that they will receive the necessary care and support they need.

It is important to remember that this process may be challenging, but it is necessary to ensure your child’s well-being. By taking the time to plan and prepare, you can provide your child with a bright and secure future.

Death, changes perspective.

How does death change your perspective?

I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t aware of death, even if I was too young to fully understand the concept at the time.

Sadly I have been all too aware of deaths ugly head rearing itself and taking friends, and relatives throughout my life.

The majority of my classmates for my final two years at college have since died, either due to their disabilities or due to other illnesses since college.

Each time, it reminds me of how many times I’ve cheated death and fought back, but equally, I know it’ll be my turn one day.

No-one really knows how long they have. So just enjoy life while you can.
