I’m looking for other people in a similar situation to my family. My brother is 55, has spina bifida/hydrocephalus and PD/LD, self funds which is very fortunate, but he cannot afford residential care for the rest of his life. As there is no involvement from SS its hard to know where to get advice/support. He lives in his own flat/housing association tenancy, with support which is really just heating up a meal 3 times a day. He is not able to organise a social life/activities/appointments or getting out and about. We are looking for families in Cambridgeshire who might be interested in clubbing together to buy a property and create our own private community with shared support and some communal space. Does anyone else self fund and have experiences to share? Advice/suggestions welcome!
