What's New Today
I am a mother caring for my 26 year old daughter who has a back injury and has been on narcotics for almost 5 years. I can't stand to see her like a zombie when she takes her meds. I am getting so tired. I work full time and have an FMLA to take her to appointments but it is all wearing me down. I am tired of wondering if I should call an ambulance or she just needs to sleep it off. Her brain is going to be damaged maybe permanently. Thanks for listening--I don't have any other kind of support.
my aunt's daughter and husband both have mental disabilities and have recently done a disappearing act with there 2 toddlers. they all live with my aunt & just decided to go a vacation one day and left everything they needed for the kids behind for 7 days and no word from either of them. how can my aunt get legal rights over her grand sons?
I am trying to help someone very special to me, he has an adult child with TBI. His son suffered this injury 10 plus years ago. Since then it has been a nightmare trying to find a group home for his adult son. Finding a group home for him is like finding a needle in a haystack! He lives in a small rural area near the Houston area. Due to the kind of work, his dad is in, his son isn't able to live with him..
Due to the fact, his son's TBI occurred after the age of 18, the resources are limited. He has Medicare/Medicaid dual coverage benefits which limit's the kind of group home he can live in. There have been a few incidents at the location that he is staying at now, with APS being called twice.
Can someone please let me know of any possible resources that are out there for his dad to use, so that he can find a better place to put his son. If anyone has a child that had a TBI after the age of 18 and knows what available resources are out there, please please let me know.
Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated :)

My 34 year old son lives with me. He receives Soc. Sec. Disability, a small amount of SSI, and salary from his part-time job. His non-stop custodial father pays nothing to help support his biological son. How can I Force his father to help with financial support? We are Pennsylvania residents. Thank you.
