How do I know if life at Marbridge is a possibility for my loved one?
Loved ones leaving home for the first time create worry for parents. Will they eat properly? Will they be safe? Will they make friends and be successful? Parents of adults with cognitive challenges worry even more, often putting off the time when the child is allowed to leave their care. The good news is that young adults with disabilities are much more capable of living away from home than many parents realize. Time and again, we see adult children move from their family home to Marbridge and begin to develop new skills, new interests and new friends—all to the great surprise and delight of their families. One of the most common remarks we hear parents make is, “We never would have dreamed they could accomplish so much!”
