PLAN Blog has been created!

As families, we want our loved ones to a live good life.

After speaking with thousands of families and persons with disabilities, we think that a good life is:
- having a home
- being surrounded by family and friends
- having enough income to live with dignity
- making choices
- pursuing one’s interests and passions
- making a contribution.

PLAN exists to help families like you to assist your relatives with disabilities to live a good life.

Thus this Blog is all about OUR shared work. We want to share what families have taught us over the years and what we think will assist you in your quest for a good life for your relative with a disability.
This includes
- news
- ideas
- information
- materials
- initiatives for public policy reform.

We want you to share what you think about our work; what is working for you and what obstacles you face in securing a good life for your relative with a disability.

We hope you you get involved.

I run a PLAN Affiliate organization in Ottawa and one of the issues that keeps on comming up with our members is the fact that you need to fit into a certain disability "Category" to get services. But as we all know, it's impossible to put a human being, any human being, with all of their unique qualities, into one category. Maybe it's time we look at serving people instead of serving "categories".
