Re: Permanent Placement of Adult with Downs

There are numerous placement options for your daughter. CILAs and group homes provide a setting that will offer your daughter a chance for independence as well as supervision. Depending upon the functioning level of your daughter and if there are other disabilities (such as needing adaptive equipment) is she ambulatory or require the assistance of a wheelchair or walker. One very nice place is LAMBS located in northern Illinois-it is one of the best. Be careful about state run facilities and large resenditial facilities-they have alot of turn over in staff which often results in only fair care if your daughter requires alot of assistance. Best of luck.
