Default Re: How to adopt your character to a new duty of life reinforcement

Hi Ocean and welcome to PC.

I have seen people with Down syndrome, but have never really known one of them well. So I'm afraid I can't help you.

I need advice on how to communicate with my 25 Yrs. old daughter with Down Syndrome. I need some guidance to help her to do her daily bases needs. Personal care skills and self-management skills.

Dear Sarah, She is not misbehaving but she is overweight and very close to other illnesses. She lived like princes and doesn't know how to manage her needs. She needs some help in this matter.

I'm sorry, but with the little information you provided, I don't think there is anything I can offer with regard to your concern. Perhaps other members, here on PC, will have some thoughts they can share.

I hope you find PC to be of benefit.
Hi Skeezyks,
Sorry for short say without introducing! I live with my daughter who is 25 yrs old diagnosed with Down Syndrome. I have a hard time communicating with her. I am a full-time employee and she is working two days a week. She needs to learn how to live independently. She does have a full-time job coach but the main problem is my behavior and guidance which I have a hard time to manage it and needed advice.

Are there any Adult Day programs, in your area? I know there are some in my area. I'm not entirely familiar with all the specifics of their programs, but perhaps that's a path you could utilize as a resource while you are at work.
As far as becoming more effective in your own skills as a caregiver of an adult child, perhaps reach out to local support groups? What about your daughter's mom, what direction is she leaning towards as far as seeing your daughter develop life skills?
