WE’VE COME A LONG WAY BABY!

-->
Over the years as a father of a child with developmental disabilities, it seems a new age of enlightenment is occurring.

One of the things involved when you have a child who has DD (developmental disabilities) is when they reach the age of 18, if they are not competent enough, you, as a parent needs to apply for guardianship. This was once an expensive long proposition, which needed among other things a certificate from a doctor and psychologist or two doctors stating your child has need for a guardian.  Hiring a lawyer for the application was strongly recommended and that was expensive.

Now, with the new laws, the standard is not an affidavit of sorts from medical and mental authorities, but rather where the person with DD is lacking, and this would define the guardianship in those areas.

The whole concept is based on the idea that law, that being Article 17a that defines the parameters of guardianship, did not represent people with DD lawfully.

Today, with the initiatives from the US Senate and Congress, people with DD are being considered in another light, are their lawful rights as citizens being considered? Today it is all people centered, and through the world of Medicate, and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the Federal government will call the shots, and I think this time for the better.

Upon reaching 65, old Tom decided to retire. His wife suggested he go and do something to occupy his time, like join a club or get a hobby
Old Tom obliged and went out for a couple of hours. When he got home his wife asked about his day and he replied, "Oh, I joined a parachute club."
"What? Are you nuts? You're 65 years old and you're going to start jumping out of airplanes?"
"Yeah, look I even got a membership card."
"Old man, you need glasses! This is a membership in a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club!"
"Oh, great! Now what am I going to do? I signed up for 5 jumps a week!"
