I think when caring for a loved one with a serious illness we all have ideas about what would be ideal. Supported housing, home visits, help convincing a loved one to accept help. For me, what was very helpful was an employment program to help my loved one get and maintain employment. The program helped her get ready, found employers looking to hire someone with her skills, and negotiated with the employer on her behalf about what kinds of accommodations she'd need. Then if she had difficulties once she started working, she could go to them to help her communicate and advocate in her workplace.
What kinds of things have you found helpful, or would you find helpful?
