Below is a video that speaks to parents (families) of a child (person) with a disability. It is never too early or too late to start planning for the future of a child living with a disability. Recognizing this, Community Living Ontario, the Ministry of Community & Social Services and Partners for Planning have collaborated to produce a FREE, dynamic resource hub for parents and caregivers. Visit Partners for Planning and learn what they have to offer.

Creating a Meaningful Day Location: Online (via live video streaming)
Date/Time: Tuesday, February 10 at 7PM
What would a meaningful day look like for our relative with a disability? And, once we’ve envisioned this, what steps do we need to take to ensure that our loved ones are sharing their gifts, contributing to their community and having the possibilities of developing valued relationships? Join us as we discuss how to develop a vision, explore community spaces and discover socially valued roles for our loved ones – while ensuring that we honour their choices.
Who should attend?
Families who would like to support their relative with a disability in finding ways to become more integrated in the community and to contribute his or her talents, skills and interests in meaningful, desirable ways.
What you’ll get out of attending:
- Strategies you can use to enhance your loved one’s life;
- An understanding of how you can leverage your family member’s interests and passions to create a full life; and
- An opportunity to connect with other families facing similar issues and concerns.
About the speaker:
Susan Beayni is one of Partners for Planning’s founders. She is a parent of an adult daughter with disabilities and provides consultation and support to families in all areas of future planning.
Creating a Meaningful Day is one seminar of a six-part series delivered by Partners for Planning that’s focused on creating a safe and secure future for your relative who may be vulnerable or isolated. Feel free to register for just this one seminar, several of the seminars or the complete series.
