Special needs siblings have services available from childhood to old age.
When in a young family, includes siblings who have special needs that child must be surrounded by brothers and sisters who support and understand those special needs.
The sibling with special needs is often the favorite in the family, due the parent’s worry and greater need to care for that sibling.
As siblings with special needs grow older, anticipating the parent’s death and the now middle-aged sibling’s future care, something called special needs trust can be established. This can help the other midlife siblings render the care the parent once gave. Geriatric Care Manager’s are often involved with the care of the special needs sibling.
