Planning for a person with a disability requires special consideration of a number of factors. These include; making conscientious decisions about future plans for the person with a disability in order to assure quality of life, including residential placement, employment, social activities, medical care, and burial arrangements; recommending persons to serve as guardians/advocates when parents are no longer alive to provide supervision and ensure that appropriate services are accessed. These may be family members, friends, or professional advocacy groups; considering parents’ potential long-term care costs; determining funding mechanisms to carry out the plan; ensuring that funds left for the benefit of a person with a disability are managed properly; and avoiding loss of eligibility for government benefits such as SSI, Medicaid, and similar benefits.
