is no doubt that the best place for the disabled to grow up is in their own family.
The alternative of setting up large-scale facilities, attempted by western countries
for about a century, has proved to be a big and costly blunder. On the other hand,
one issue that is major source of worry for parents is the possibility that their
disabled child may outlive them. The question that what will happen to my son/daughter
after we are no more "Keeps bothering them as they and their child grow older.
The support of extended families and transfer of care to the siblings, which were
common earlier, may not be possible in current and future scenario. Also families
commonly face the problem of making temporary arrangements for care outside the
family in times of crisis, family function, journeys and other situation. There
are families in very difficult circumstances, for whom providing care for their
disabled member become difficult. Even the families who have a high commitment
and who are taking good care of their affected member feel the need to be relieved
of stress of care.
Keeping these consideration in mind, it is necessary
to establish facilities for temporary or permanent residential care for a limited
number of people with mental retardation.
